The parents of the Southeast university students continuing their protest against the administration which making impediments to the technology faculty students to carry out their studies.
On 12th of October morning, the parents came to the university to have a meeting with the administration but the administration did not respond until the VC agreed to discuss with them at 1:00pm. In that meeting, the parents presented the following demands for their children.
1. Re-stablish of the educational rights for the students whose students ships were abolished and suspended.
2. Giving their exams rights back.
3. Proper solutions for the educational welfare problems.
But the VC tried to follow an evasive method by promising verbally to fulfill the demands then the parents continued the dialogue until passing the mid night to get the demands. So the VC then gave them an english written letter and asked parents to accept and sign it but the parents refused to take it as it was written in english.
On the next morning, the VC came back to the parents and told them off as they refused to accept the letter. Then the parents decided to stay continuously in the administrative building until they meet the demands.
When the parents were staying at the building, the VC ordered to lock the toilets of the building then asked police and security officers to force the parents to stay out of the building.
On the 14th October the all university students came to the administrative building with a huge protest and took the parents out of the building then stayed in front of the building until they get their demands.
Then the VC gave another letter to the parents but they refused the letter as it did not content any reasonable acceptable solutions. Then the VC was trying to weaken the protest in several ways. One of these was, he tried to use management faculty staff to force management students to walk away from the protest, saying that this problem was not management faculty problem. But without caring any forced attempts from the administration, the Southeast university students and their parents were protesting continuously until they meet their demands.
