- University of Johannesburg students and workers have launched an #OccupyUJ shut down in response to workers losing their jobs, the VC refusing to meet with students over fees. Students have faced assault by security, bouncers and armed police. Please send airtime or an e-wallet to @UJFML via 0834412941 (MTN).
-We are getting reports from CUT Welkom students were attacked and arrested. We've called lawyers, but students are requesting airtime donations to coordinate bail, call parents and reach out to media as they are being ignored. Donate airtime or e-wallet to these numbers: 071 005 1376 Cell C and 078 640 4035 MTN.
- Fort Hare students were harassed by police and when a stun grenade was thrown one student was arrested by police. The Black Lawyers Associated provided support and the leader was released, however students state police said "We're coming from you" so students are living in fear and are requested donations of airtime and an e-wallet so they can cover transport costs and get to safety. 084 232 3847. *Further update 26 October* SRC has been indicted by the university. Legal help being provided by our allies at SERI. Students are organising a mass meeting today to coordinate further shut down.

At this time we are still trying to get numbers from other student groups, but as you can expect things are chaotic. If you know the numbers of leaders at FET colleges, UKZN, Fort Hare, UJ and other groups at Higher Education institutions, please urgently send us these details.
It’s been a grueling week for many students on the eve of exams. While many can donate food and water, students also need airtime and together we can run an airtime crowdfunding campaign to support their work.
Together in solidarity,
