5:22 pm
inequality we want to hear your thoughts on the movement the play and our conversation today so to reach us or leave a comment in our live you tube shot and you too could be in the stream. in march of two thousand and fifteen students at the university of cape town launched rhodes must fall a movement that not only brought down a statue but sparked a broader discussion on how universities can better reflect a diverse student body and provide wider access to education. three years on a group of students who participated in the maze meant sharing that experiences it was to what it says around the world the chance to activism while tackling issues of race class gender and power. we.
5:23 pm
are now joined by three co-creators and members of the cast america conrad thank you seminar bono and sees race and welcome everyone to the stream it is so good to have you guys here especially because i have seen this production and many of our audience members have as well but even for those who didn't many of them remember the roads must fall movements i want to start here on my laptop with someone from top africa this is i've been asked who says these must fall roads must fall open the rot that lies deep within our society and resulted in a clamping down of activism so that his take away from this movement that we saw in twenty fifteen for you thank you so tell me about where you were when this movement started do you remember i do remember because i was on the drama campus of u.c. t.v. so we were very separate from the main body of the campus and i remember there was
5:24 pm
talk of someone who had the statue and we were very interested in knowing what was happening and i looked at my phone and i saw on twitter and on facebook videos of the sky and all these people standing around the statue and for some reason i was with a few of my friends who were in the play as well and we felt drawn to the situation we face there was a rush of adrenaline we felt this is the moment that we have been waiting for and we abandoned classes. and we went to the brim the building with there was a meeting held and that's where every. it started with people said ok well you know got to tell us when the statue is going down then we're going to occupy this building and this is the sessile road statue which is on the on the campus of the university of cape town and it was a bucket of poo that was thrown at sessile road statue in the mirror thank you this was an education process to work out what this guy down and some university of cape town students so furious about his presence there. for
5:25 pm
a lot of students i think we weren't really aware of what the legacy of sessile john rhodes actually was because it's not really something that you get talked about at high school level so if you actually pursue history into university maybe second or even third year do you really start learning about the actual rotter of colonialism as the tweeter had said. so for me it was you know ok people are really reacting to this statue to this moment why don't i know about this what can i do to seek out this knowledge and really the only place that you could get the information was the movement and it was amazing to be part of that moment where it wasn't only as a lot of people thought it was just like an angry bunch of students occupying buildings knocking down things you know being annoying to the staff members there were also film screenings that were held there were lectures with black academics that were held there was information that was passed around to people and it was it
5:26 pm
was really like a separate university to the university which was amazing says well what was it about this moment why why twenty fifteen why not the year two thousand why not. last year what was it about that particular town i. i think i think you know the stars aligned and three for three was the. unfortunate to be part of the group of chile fifteen because of a such a big symbol the removal moving of the statue is such a big symbol that you know we had to move the statue so you have to turn fifteen is the yeah you know i don't know why it was three fifteen but it's twenty fifteen and that's when you know just. i wanted to bring this up this is from misc who says on twitter that the impact abroad the most fault drop greater attention to the existing legacy appraising colonialism in our institutions of how euro centrism
5:27 pm
sexism and capitalism still reign of how narratives toward embracing african interest of molecules are still just regarded a lot there in two hundred eighty characters and she is just packed in there but break it down for us because in the play for those who do have the chance to go see it you do explain some of the what some people might call microaggression that happened to students whether they actually happen to you or your characters or other people you know help us explain for our audience who's watching at home right now what some of those micro aggressions are or what some of that colonialism looks like for a day to day average student i mean it's it's an understanding that we live in a country that has a majority of black people and we go to university with firstly we can't afford to stage a cation so majority of poor people in south africa a black people and already they.
