protestTimesLive reports that university academics will take to the streets to support students in their quest for free education.  

This was the decision taken following meetings between students, parents, unionists and lecturers from Wits University and the University of Johannesburg (UJ) over the weekend.  "Academics from Wits and UJ will be calling on all academics to join students in the streets to support the cause," said Prishani Naidoo, a senior lecturer at Wits University.  While academics were critical of the violence, they remained supportive of the students, she indicated.
