UPNG Petition

PNG Loop’s 5@5

UPNG gives O’Neill 24-hour ultimatum

The University of Papua New Guinea students have given the Prime Minister 24-hours to respond favourably to their petition or there’ll be a mass withdrawal.



Hundreds gather at UPNG

Hundreds of people have gathered at the University of Papua New Guinea’s main Waigani campus.

UPNG to present petition tomorrow

Student leader Christopher Kipalan said this afternoon during their forum that apart from the delegates, they are also expecting outsiders, concerned citizens, to attend the event.

“Because this country not only belongs to the 5000 students of UPNG but also the 8 million people of Papua New Guinea.

“The entire field is reserved for the general public while students will sit at the Forum Square, dressed in black.”

All entrances to the main Waigani campus will be closed and guarded by police, Uniforce and students, except for the main gate.
