A #FeesMustFall protest is taking place at the University of Stellenbosch and students are involved in a stand-off with private security guards.

By Friday afternoon, the students were still engaged in a tug-of- war with private security guards where one student was dosed with pepper spray and another suffered a seizure. The protest began on Monday morning when students staged a sit-in at the university's JS Gericke Library under the banners #Occupy4FreeEducation and the #SFMFDefianceCampaign. Students have demanded to speak to the rector and vice chancellor Professor Wim de Villiers. It is uncertain at this stage if the professor will address the protesters.
