On 14 December 1988, 4ZZZ was taken off air and forcibly evicted from its UQ premises by the then student union executive, headed by one Victoria Brazil. The move prompted many previously apolitical students to take a firm stand against the move and to rally support for the station.

Frenchman fronting court over alleged Picasso thefts
The retired electrician said he was hired to work on Picasso’s home before the artist died in 1973, becoming close friends with the man and his wife.
He says Jacqueline Picasso gifted him the nearly 300 drawings and sketches when he finished job, but the Picasso administration says it’s likely the works were stolen.
Administration lawyer Jean-Jacques Neuer says “If someone gives you 271 Picasso works, you remember that."
The trial is expected to last three days.
