Avoid London Road, student protests currently in and around Alexandra. The protesters are burning tyres and stoning cars.
Students are protesting against course changes. Apparently the college cancelled courses offered on that campus and moved them to Ellis park. This change means that the learners have to pay taxis to get to classes. The students say there was no communication about the plans from the college.
2016 was a year of continuous student protests and it seems that 2017 will continue until there are solutions. The students and other protesters should realize there are civilized ways to deal with issues and should act like adults. There are ways and means where students can raise their concerns and not act like hooligans seeking attention. The protests are all about a sense of entitlement and handouts, how does one justify the burning, and destroying of property. It is pathetic.
