We will not march in protest, students say

The University of Papua New Guinea students will not be marching in protest today or any other day.

Instead, they will be gathering at the Forum Square at 10am today in anticipation of the prime minister and police commissioner’s arrival.

Student representative council member Emelda Arabagali told Loop PNG that they will present their petition to the two parties at the main Waigani campus.

“Commissioner Gari Baki confirmed with us last night that he will be attending our rally today. We have not received any response from the Prime Minister’s Office yet,” the medical students’ leader stated.

Students are urged to wear black to show that they are in mourning.

“We are in mourning because we are worried that our nation will go to ruin,” final year linguistics student Fiona Silo said.
