South African Students Protest

11-10-2016 07:00

This news is from South Africa. Thousands of people protest. They protest at a university. They protest against higher tuition fees.

The protest is peaceful. However, it is illegal. People must not meet at the campus. The police come. They shoot at the people.

South Africans are angry. They want education. They say that education is only for rich white people.

Difficult words: tuition fee (the money you pay to university), peaceful (nice, without fighting), illegal (something that you are not allowed to do).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
