35 Powerful Photos of Student Protests on the Streets of South Africa

Photographer Adrienne Waheed has spent the past week capturing student uprisings in Johannesburg, South Africa. The #FeesMustFall protests were in reaction to the government's decision to increase fees by 11 percent. On Friday, President Jacob Zuma announced that the fee hike would be suspended. Many are calling this a hollow victory as many Black students still cannot afford to get a higher education. Here, a look at the protests through Waheed's eyes.
