Several students added their signatures to a petition on the protection of Afrikaans students’ rights at the University of Pretoria.

This was in support to a campaign held by the AfriForum Youth.

The petition was signed onto the graffiti wall of the University, after the management refused to be handed the forms in public.

Nikke Strydom, chairperson of AfriForum Youth at the institution, says mother-tongue education is under serious threat and that the manifesto of student’s rights is a watered-down document.
