Joke candidate turned student politician Logan Edgar, Otago Univeristy Students' Association (OUSA) President, will lock himself in a cage overnight to protest ACT's Education (Freedom of Association) Amendment Bill.
The Bill will prevent Mr Edgar and other student politicians around the country from forcing students to join their associations and pay hefty subscriptions every year.
"Sadly, as a comedian, Mr Logan has failed to notice the joke is on the thousands of Otago students he claims to speak for," says ACT on Campus President Peter McCaffrey.
"Students are forced to hand over hundreds of dollars, on top of their tuition fees, to be locked in an ideological cage with him and his cronies - against their own will."
"ACT on Campus calls on the Government to release students from the cage they have been locked in for decades - in time for the 2012 academic year."
