Mona students protest


Share post:

STUDENTS at the University of the West Indies (UWI) Mona Campus who were barred from taking exams because they hadn’t paid tuition fees, this morning turned their protests up another notch, when they turned over desks and chairs and ordered legitimate students sitting exams out of exam rooms.
The protesters, who were peacefully demonstrating outside the administration building earlier this morning, soon got aggressive, and insisted that if they couldn’t sit exams, no one else could.
Some were sprawled out on desks, others raised such a ruckus that the police had to be called in.
UWI officials insist that they have for months given the students room for dialogue, and those who owe upwards of $30,000 would not be allowed to sit the exams.
More than six exams were postponed. (Jamaica Observer)
