British students openly violate human rights.

A British student body has voted to ban all military personel, including cadets, from their campus. The usual "illegal, bloody war, cut off support" rhetoric as seen earlier this year in the city of Berkley Ca, which wanted to kick out the marine recuitment office.

However, I quote from the European chaper on fundamental human rights:

  • Article 14
    Right to education
  • 1. Everyone has the right to education and to have access to vocational and continuing training.
  • 2. This right includes the possibility to receive free compulsory education.
  • 3. The freedom to found educational establishments with due respect for democratic principles and
    the right of parents to ensure the education and teaching of their children in conformity with their
    religious, philosophical and pedagogical convictions shall be respected, in accordance with the national
    laws governing the exercise of such freedom and right.

Obviously, banning students because of their profession, carreer plans or political point of view is a gross violation of the European human rights, chapter one article 14.
