Students continue fight for equality in education
The Abatsha Alliance comprises university students and high school pupils in grade 11 and 12.
JOHANNESBURG - The Abatsha Alliance for Free Education (AAFE) says it will push ahead with its fight for transformation and equality.
The group marched from the University of Johannesburg's Auckland Park campus to Constitution Hill on Wednesday to express their concerns about the education system.
It will host another conference at Constitution Hill today.
The alliance's Dasanda Nondlazi says, "We work intimately with the Fees Must Fall movement as we believe the struggles of youth are embedded in the lack of education. Our historic situation almost dictates that blacks will suffer in a state when you have to pay for education."
Abatsha comprises university students from six institutions and high school pupils in grade 11 and 12.
