Unitech students continue boycott

The students at the Papua New Guinea University of Technology have now declared an indefinite period of boycott.
"All academic departments have shut down and no assessments will take place during this time” says a Boycott Committee spokesperson,
Livingstone Fontenu.

The Prime Minister Peter O'Neill was said to have received the UNITECH petition on Tuesday this week at 10am but did not respond within the 48hour deadline which was stated in the petition.
The SRC was advised by the office of the Prime Minister that O’Neill would respond when he receives the petition from the University of Papua New Guinea students as well.

The Unitech students have built tents in the academic area and are congregating in their regional groups to wait and further discuss on possible courses of action that can be taken next if they do not receive a response to their petition.
"The most common one that is currently discussed and is likely the next course of action is a public mass awareness" says Fontenu. PNGFM / PNG Today
