Burning of the University of Papua New Guinea’s Uni Venture building

UPNG building set alight due to ‘spillover’

(A student leader told Loop PNG that students are still frustrated following the shooting of their colleagues on June 8.

“In the history of UPNG, we successfully held the most non-violent protest for the last eight weeks.”

He said the students displayed maturity, professionalism, diplomacy and most importantly, patriotism.

“Instead of working with the students and bring peace after allowing the police to come in and shoot unarmed students, they send the Uniforce to harass them.”
