PEOPLE'S Power Movement leader Noel Anjo has given news agency AAP a first-hand account of the circumstances around police opening fire on university students last Wednesday.
Describing the shooting as “an ambush”, Mr Anjo, said “they were assaulting and firing at them."
Mr Anjo, who was a member of the student organisers, rejected reports that students were preparing to march on parliament.
He said they were about to board buses which would take them to parliament to present a petition.
"There was no march," he said Mr Anjo. "There were flags and maybe one or two banners, and the students were in the bus.
