Students, signs and songs are rising

Yesterday marked a significant victory for students at Rhodes University. MIP fees were dropped, and the terms of International student fees were renegotiated.

Today, mass demonstrations in Grahamstown continued, Rhodes campus went into complete shutdown-mode and barricades were guarded by groups of students.

Activists gathered in front of the Humanities department on Prince Alfred road and sang songs of freedom while they held up signs that searched for solutions, or pointed to the problems that plague our society and threaten our future.
