Aw no, so sad! The Rhodes Must Fall collective lost a cheerleader.
These students that are now burning paintings have lost all my sympathy.

Those in solidarity with the students at UCT are having none of that though.

But the love and support for the collective is real, and still there.
Love &strength to all of the students who are fighting for shelter & to decolonize UCT. Take care of yourselves & one another. #Shackville
