The graffiti was discovered on Friday morning by a staff member, who immediately contacted a cleaning firm. First-year Biology student Minh Hoang spotted the scrubbing of the green letters around noon and posted a photo on Facebook. ‘Maybe you should stop vandalizing uni furniture’, he wrote below it. ‘I have nothing against anti-GM types,’ he responds when asked, ‘but I don’t think this is the right approach.’
