Protest march planned for Thursday, 6 March 2008
2008-03-06

The management of the University of the Free State (UFS) has not received any applications from any organisation to have a protest march on the Main Campus in Bloemfontein tomorrow (Thursday, 6 March 2008).

Although the university’s management was informed of a national protest march by Nehawu tomorrow (Thursday), we have not been informed of such a march on the Main Campus. The management shares Nehawu’s sentiments to have a protest march and to express their views about the video.

We are aware of Cosatu and outside organisations’ plans to have a protest march tomorrow. The university management also shares their sentiments in this regards.

Our students are currently in a test period which will continue next week as well. It is extremely important to us that calm is restored on campus in order for academic activities to continue as normal.

We are prepared to receive a memorandum at the main gate to the UFS in Nelson Mandela Drive tomorrow (Thursday), but no one will be allowed on campus as no permission for a protest march on campus has been applied for.
