Jones: UWI students being led astray

Social Share

MINISTER OF EDUCATION Ronald Jones is concerned that some young people in Barbados are being led astray by certain sections of society regarding the payment of tuition fees at the University of the West Indies (UWI) from next year.
Speaking on Sunday during a Democratic Labour Party (DLP) St George South branch meeting at Greens Pavilion, Drax Hall, Jones said last week’s march of students from Jubilee Gardens to Independence Square, organized by the campus’ students guild, was proof.
“I felt very concerned for those few young people who marched on Friday,”?he said. “There are some things which must remain pure in its intent – if the young people want to march, let them march.
“In our democracy that is a right once permission is given. But you know who you saw hanging around them like locusts, sucking the very nature out of the purity of their [decision]? That is what annoyed me.”
