Fight for justice or a student holiday?

WHEN I got to the rally on the University of KwaZulu-Natal’s Pietermaritzburg campus on Tuesday, my first impression was that students just wanted an extended Easter break and an excuse not to attend tests.

Despite the seeming apathy of the political backbenchers, the rest of the crowd was alive with indignation. Some wore the yellow T-shirts that represented the SRC’s leading party (the ANC Youth League), some blew their vuvuzelas and others held up posters calling for The Big Chill to be re-opened (I wondered what that was about). publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
