Last week was a very energised week. Throughout the week we received images that captured the tone of the movement. Below are the most captivating images from front line photographers.
QUOTE by Nigel: “The #FeesMustFall is a Damascus moment for South Africa as for the first time students have come together to challenge the continuous commodification of tertiary education. Of symbolic importance is the unity and rejection of political opportunists that continues to be displayed by students as they come together to challenge issues of structural inequality that continue to be an obstacle to black students in post-apartheid South Africa. Government gave in to the demands of the students of freezing university fees but this does not change anything for students that continue to be forced into debt for them to access education. As witnessed earlier on in the year several students were turned down because they failed to access NSFAS funds ,this is bound to happen again next year if the government does not commit to providing free education to its citizens. Education is a powerful weapon and the government must make it a priority that its citizens are well armed, failure of which is detrimental to the future of Azania and the greater Afrika. Free education now ? ”
