Mass withdrawal of PNG University students imminent

Protesting students of UPNG, numbering close to 5,000 have given the Administration and the Vice Chancellor, 24 hours to reimburse their Semester 2 school fee refunds and provide their tickets to return to their home provinces. They have now threatened a mass withdrawal commencing today and still stand their grounds and petition. This follows another call from the Vice Chancellor yesterday at 4pm for the students to return to class TODAY. The students have refused to boycott classes and will again be addressed by the VC today.
