student leaders were arrested at Harare Polytechnical college where
they were addressing students on various issues affecting the students
movement. ZINASU has been at loggerheads with the education
authorities over the education policy which the government introduced
early last year.
the ZINASU President vowed that they would continue to pile pressure
on the government until it yields to the demands of the students,he
said the extra-ordinary general meeting of ZINASU held in Harare
on Monday the 26th of February 2007 had resolved to go on stayaway
from the 5th of March 2007 until the problems affecting students
have been resolved.
students are demanding:
- An immediate review of our payout
- improved accommodation and food standards
- ln solidarity with our Lecturers and parents(workers),demand
a review of their salaries to meet their basic needs.
- An immedite resolution of the current crisis that threatens
to break the very fibre of our beloved country and put into disarray
the prospects of a bright future
demands are just and legitimate
