Baru-baru ini Akta Universiti dan Kolej Universiti (AUKU) 1971 sekali lagi menjadi perhatian umum apabila empat mahasiswa jurusan Sains Politik UKM bakal dikenakan tindakan disiplin di bawah akta tersebut kerana didakwa melibatkan diri dalam kempen pilihanraya kecil Hulu Selangor. Mereka telah dituduh melanggar Seksyen 15(5)(a) AUKU yang melarang mahasiswa dari menyatakan sokongan atau simpati terhadap mana-mana parti politik.

Walaupun semakin banyak perhatian diberikan terhadap kes tersebut, pemahaman tentang latar belakang, fungsi, keberkesanan dan impak sebenar AUKU masih menjadi persoalan serta tanda tanya dikalangan mahasiswa dan juga masyarakat umum.

Siri ketiga "AUKU Public Lecture Series" akan melihat kesan serta impak sebenar AUKU terhadap hak dan kebebasan mahasiswa dari sudut pandangan aktivis mahasiswa sendiri.

Date: Saturday, 26 June 2010
Time: 09:00 - 12:00
Location: The Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (klpac)
Street: Sentul Park, off Jalan Ipoh
Town/City: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The following is lifted from the FB EVENT PAGE:

Back in 2007, the New Straits Times ran a photo of villagers carrying a house on their shoulders. It was to help Abu Hassan Ahmad, a farmer who decided to move closer to his mother-in-law in order to care for her poor health. A total of 150 villagers carried his house half-a-kilometre to the new site. They then helped to clear the land at the new location. Such feat was a common practice in the older days, especially in rural areas and small towns.

Inspired by this event, Liew Seng Tat and geng, with support from Five Arts Centre, are inviting urbanites to rediscover the gotong-royong spirit in the Klang Valley. The public are invited to a parade and to move a specially-designed house along Jalan Ipoh to its final destination: Urbanscapes 2010! Once the house reaches the festival grounds at KLPac, the house will be converted into an open stage for anyone who wants to perform.
