Delhi Streets See Sea of Students and Teachers Marching in Defence of Education
March 29, 2018
The People's March against the Government's policy onslaught on higher education and attack on reservation, saw an ocean of people descend on Parliament Street. Over 10000 teachers and students constituted the unprecedented gathering that marched with the DUTA banner through Barakhamba Road, Tolstoy Marg, Janpath and Jantar Mantar to finally culminate in a huge public meeting on Parliament Street. Students were seen waving colourful and witty posters, singing, playing musical instruments and shouting slogans against privatisation and commercialisation of public-funded higher education.
