UNIVERSITY of Technology students will take a stand against the national government by staging a mass public protest in Lae this week.
Unitech Student Representative Council president Eddie Nagual (pictured) says he and his fellow students are ready to carry out public awareness to encourage for public participation.
“We want to move Lae city to get them to understand that what’s happening now in parliament is setting a bad precedent,” Mr Nagual said.
He said the Unitech student body is totally against the government and believes prime minister Peter O’Neill is going beyond the limit.
“We respect the legal court processes and decisions and are calling on PM O’Neill to follow process and clear his name to prove his innocence,” Mr Nagual said.
“The actions undertaken are definitely not in the best interests of the people” he added.
At the weekend, Mr Nagual travelled to the University of Goroka to meet with fellow student leaders to decide a course of action for the National Students Union.
