Yesterday was interesting. Despite my school being outstandingly liberal, certain pupils went on strike because of "limits to our freedom".
The school is planning on putting a 2 metre fence all around the school, with only one entrance and exit. I don't see the problem, but the druggies and the freedom-freaks do. More people still just went on strike to skip lessons. The whole affair was a farce from beginning to end.
Still, it was exciting. Someone brought drums. someone brought a horn, and at one point climbed onto the canteen roof to set it off.
Someone phoned RTL, and the whole crowd surged towards the camera crew when it arrived.
