ANU students continue to show their dissatisfaction with the ANU administration.
Upset with what they view as a failure on behalf of the administration to fund tutorials, provide decent conditions for staff, and hold “genuine consolation” with concerned parties, the students of ANU decided to crash Deputy Vice Chancellor Marnie Hughes Warrington’s opening address at the ANU open day, and pile up some corpses at her feet.
Entering to the sound of a funeral march, dressed in bloody clothes and accompanied by a grim reaper, students staged a ‘die-in’, littering the stage with ‘bodies’.
Geraldine Fela addressed the audience to explain that: “We are not here because we don’t want people to come to this University. We want people to come but we want them to come prepared to fight an administration determined to erode quality of education at every step.”
Following the demonstration, members of the ANU EAG spent time talking to concerned parents and prospective students about the policies of the ANU and why students were taking action to defend education for current and future students alike.
