I am frustrated. Students at the University of the Witwatersrand were shot at with rubber bullets as they attempt to protest against the hike in next year's tuition rates. How ridiculous. You have some of your intellectuals and leaders at one of the top universities in the country with the inability to protest and speak up for their rights to education. I ask those who still represent tertiary education or part of student bodies to support the Wits students with emails, publicly denouncing violence on this protest and messages to these institutions that these are not radical, weapon toting hooligans... these are your future leaders who wish to voice their frustration with the difficult undemocratic S.A. system.
