A group of at least 100 aggrieved student protesters at UCT are marching through campus in an effort to disrupt classes, reports EWN's Monique Mortlock.
It appears that six students were arrested by police on campus this morning, as classes resumed following a two-week long shut down.
Police confirmed that the students were detained for contravening a court order, however there is no information yet regarding who the students are or what the interdict states.
According to Mortlock, protesters are planning to march to the Mowbray police station - though it has not been confirmed where the students are being held.
The protesters are demanding that their peers be released and have threatened to resist arrest from police, because they feel they are protesting peacefully.
The group has made its way from Uppper to Middle campus, but access to several buildings has been blocked.
Last week, UCT vice-chancellor Max Price cautioned that the university could shut down until 2017, if student protests continue.
University management also announced that there would be no graduation ceremonies later this year.
