Rhodes Must Fall protesters burn UCT artworks on campus

News24 has obtained video showing works of art from UCT being burned on campus in protest. Watch.

Student accommodation at UCT came under the spotlight recently as Rhodes Must Fall campaigners constructed a shack on Residence Road to draw attention to poverty and the housing needs for students.

While the university says it respects the constitutional right of any member of the UCT community to participate in protest action on the campus, they also admit that UCT is facing an accommodation issue.
