#FeesMustFall was a distinctive student protest across all universities in South Africa since 2015. It becomes a national eye-opener when one considers the painful grievances which students brought forward. We want your (student/campus staff members) recollected experiences on campus during this protest. Comparing extreme student collectivity, over both online and offline spaces, is most visible when researching campus protest trends. No doubt that this was a historical event, sadly our ongoing research shows that many university students and staff feel that not much has changed.

Help us tell your campus protest story by uploading and captioning pictures you may have kept on your smartphone or stored in the cloud somewhere.
