On Wednesday 19 October, ASAWU hosted a meeting that was aimed at proposing peaceful dialogue as a solution to the impasse at Wits and to invite ways of thinking about how to end the cycle of violence. The event was organised by Prof Vishwas Satgar with the knowledge and support of the Union executive. The meeting took place at Trinity Church (next to the School of Arts & WAM). Invited speakers were Jay Naidoo, Adv Thuli Madonsela, and Fr Graham Pugin. All members of the Wits community were invited.
