By Revolutionary Students Front – RSF
Despite all the hardships of COVID-19 crisis, lockdowns and closure of the educational institutes, this year’s countrywide students’ marches and protests by Students Action Committees (SAC) for the restoration of students’ union, banned in 1986 by Zia ul Haq dictatorship, are great success. Due to the COVID-19, SOPs were strictly followed, masks were distributed among participants. The demands of students include; increase in the education budget, no to online education without proper internet facilities all across the country, the establishment of harassment committees in the institutes with the representation of students, provision of hostels and transport, increase in scholarships and others. Here, we are publishing the pictures from all across the country of Students’ March 2020 for our readers.
