#FeesMustFall

Pay attention to South Africa and the #FeesMustFall movement, where students are protesting higher education costs and are being met with state violence. I've been watching the hashtag (and some related ones). The attempt to raise fees is broadly seen as a movement to exclude poor black students from higher education.

Here's a BBC article, but Twitter is the best news sources.
