Universities, language, access, education and student protest – follow the debate.


Kerfuffle monster.
Yes, war is that.
The ingredients of protest.
They spoke tiger-speak.
Some spoke in their
Mother tongue. Others
In English to the media.
That day that history
Will never forget.
When we were all winners.
I remembered
Bantu education.
Hector Pieterson.
Youth taking to the streets.
You can go to the archives.
You will find all
The information you need
There to write up your
Research paper.
I watched the news.
Holding my breath. Waiting.
Waiting until the news
Came and then there it was.
Introspection. Defeat.
The beaten track.

Fees Must Fall

Join the ongoing conversation on education, access, transformation, language and the Constitution.
