Drew Pavlou, an elected UQ Senate student representative, organised a series of protests supporting the Hong Kong pro-democracy movement and criticised UQ’s Confucius Institute in the past year.
On Monday, Mr Pavlou tweeted the university had upheld its decision to suspend him until 2021 and he also wrote: “We fight on. Total exoneration or nothing. UQ wants war, they have it.”
Mr Pavlou said on Twitter his suspension meant he would be removed from the UQ Senate and be ineligible to contest student elections.
