The return of student activism

The Universities and University Colleges Act (UUCA) came into force in 1971 and with that the clampdown on student activism came to a grinding halt. Yesterday, after 45 years, it was so refreshing to see 2,000 students challenging the might of the authorities and did something that should have been done years ago, to demand for accountability from the government.
UMNO had better sit up and take notice. The Opposition parties may not have sufficient clout to influence the rural folks, but the students can and will do just that unless UMNO start to do something about their own leaders.
If nothing is done, there is one big chunk of votes that UMNO can kiss goodbye to.
