Chinese Communist Party Influence in Australian Universities

Recent events at the University of Queensland have brought into sharp relief the Chinese Communist Party’s influence activities on Australian campuses. Tensions arising from the mass protests in Hong Kong have prompted democracy activists in the West to speak out, but they have also inflamed nationalist sentiment among some Chinese students, to the point where here and other places around the world they have engaged in angry confrontation and even violence against pro-Hong Kong protesters.

This has left many Australians asking what is going on, so I hope tonight to give some context that helps explain recent events.
