This is a campaign started in May 2014 in Norway following the restrictions for university admission and resident permit of Iranian students in technical field with justification of UN sanctions and domestic export control. It was triggered when Hamideh Kaffash, an Iranian PhD student at NTNU, was expelled from the country after one year of researcher over the fear of transferring knowledge for WMD development.

  • I'd like a way to compare different "gay libel" cases that have been lodged, from Oscar Wilde to Tom Cruise to Liberace to Robbie Williams. I'm considering making a category, but the category name Gay Libel Cases seems anachronistic since the word "gay" wasn't used that way in Wilde's time. I'm also expecting pushback on linking gay libel cases which involved people later outed, like Oscar Wilde and Liberace, with gay libel cases involving straight people, like Tom Cruise and Robbie Williams. What do people think would be the best wording for a category like this to avoid offense & also avoid an overly long Category name? Markwiki (talk) 00:04, 25 May 2010 (UTC)
