Two cases of sexual assault involving three EFFSC leaders at UWC provoked students to march against gender-based violence on campus.
Some students were still digging in their heels and refusing to vacate the university residences by 16h00 on Friday, arguing that an eviction order would be required to make them go.
In October 2015, we saw one of the biggest student protests in post apartheid Africa. Students from tertiary institutions protesting against fee increments and called for “free quality Afrocentric socialist education.” Outsourced workers at the instutions joined the protest action calling for insourcing. So much has been written on the campaign and what lessons that can be learnt from it.
The protest was a response to proposed fee hikes by the institutions.
