Students led by the Swaziland Union of Students (SNUS) will be marching to the Ministry of Education in Mbabane this morning (4 September 2012). The march is part of a global week of action for Swaziland. The students are marching to demand education for all in Swaziland.

The Centre for Human Rights and Development, Swaziland, reports more than 100 students are now gathered in Manzini in preparation to proceed to Mbabane where they will be meeting other students to proceed to the Ministry.

This is the second day of the Global week of Action for Swaziland and is devoted to education. Reports from Mbabane, the Swazi capital, are that police and security forces are massing in Coronation Park ready to stop any prodemocracy gathering.

The People’s United Democratic Movement (PUDEMO), a political party banned in Swaziland, reported that several buses were on their way to Mbabane filled with activists from Manzini, Nhlangano and Piggs Peak to join the demonstration.
