Protesting Maties push for peaceful campus shutdown

Protesting students at Stellenbosch University have threatened to shut down activities on campus, reports EWN's Monique Mortlock.

The students staged a mass meeting on the Rooiplein and have been demanding that Rector Wim de Villiers engage them about their list of grievances.

A group of at least 400 students have been moving from building to building across campus, in an attempt to gain access.
