Fees Must Fall March

Season 6 Episode 37

Thu, 25 May 2017 12:00am

For a week the universities of the Western Cape and the rest of the country were in turmoil.

Tens of thousand of students protested against the government’s announcement that they were going to increase the fees for tertiary education.

Campuses were shut down. Lectures cancelled and riot police shot water cannon,tear gas, rubber bullet and stun grenades at protesting students.

Street Talk took its cameras to parliament where the police use violence against the students marchers and then later recorded a conversation between seven students protesters who discuss the issues behind the march and what they think the University administrations and government must do.
