This is the official website of the Fees Must Fall student protest and movement at the University of Witwatersrand. Fees Must Fall is movement led by tertiary students that originally strived to remove the 10.5% fee increases installed by the University Council for the 2016 academic year. Over 9 days since the movement began, the students evolved their demands to include a call to end the outsourcing of workers within the university as well as a call for free education for all students. This website is platform that seeks to tell the story from the perspective of the students and workers affected and involved in the protests. It is alternative media for the movement by the movement. Our mandate is to accurately inform, narrate and represent the students and workers of the University of the Witwatersrand. *On 23 October 2015, following an intervarsity march to the Union Buildings in the capital of South Africa in Pretoria, President Jacob Zuma announced that university fees would not increase in 2016.
