The student command's Lauren Grootboom said the victimisation of certain students at Stellenbosch University continues unabated.
"We are tired of this university victimising our students. We are tired of this university criminalising our students."
The EFF student command members said they are also demonstrating against security officials allegedly hired by the university dubbed "the men in black".
She said the university's private security is also a problem.
"The men in black are external security forces that the university has hired to terrorise us."
During protests yesterday, there were debates and confrontations between the EFF members and Afriforum demonstrators who protected a statue of Jan Marais.
