Peak of student strike

The protest drew a large number of students

The throng of protesters also made its way into the library.

By 3pm dozens of classes had been emptied of students.

Some protesters said that they were willing to spend the night on campus in a bid to pressure AUC administration to back down from the recent 9 percent tuition fee hike.
