The group of mostly lecturers, cleaning staff and 3 members of the UGSS, waved placards whilst chanting various slogans but failed in their bid to convince other students to join in. A few unarmed uniformed police arrived at 12:19 PM and warned the students against blocking ingress and egress.
Spokeswoman for the group of protesters, Bernice Anthony explained that they were supporting their lecturers' demands for no political interference in UG's affairs, the recruitment of experienced and qualified staff and the installation of laboratories.
When told that several classes were in session and a number of administrative services were being carried out despite the commencement of a four-day sit-in on Tuesday, Anthony suggested that those not participating might be politically motivated. Many students were overheard questioning the reasons behind the protests while some bluntly stated that they will not be affected by Kissoon's dismissal and were not interested.
