by Gao Yuan CAPE TOWN Cheap Jordan 1 , Feb. 26 (Xinhua) -- Violent protests at some universities in South Africa saw no sign of abating on Friday despite growing calls for academic programs to return to normal. The new spate of violence hampered preparations for a new academic year, forcing some universities to shut down. Students and workers are protesting for various reasons, ranging from accommodation shortage, outsourcing and language policy. At the University of North West http://www.cheapjordan1forsale.com/ , the science building was burned down. At some other universities, public properties were also vandalized and buildings were torched. Management at the universities has vowed to deal with troublemakers harshly. The University of Pretoria said it will adopt a zero tolerance to violence and crime when the institution opens its doors next week. Students at the university have been protesting against using Africaans as a medium of instruction. At least 27 people were arrested last week for suspected involvement in acts of violence. Protest at the university spilled out of campus when protesters torched a Metrorail train and attacked rail workers. ""We will employ an approach of zero tolerance. That means we will use all our internal procedures as relevant. We have internal process for transgressions of our code of conduct but if something is a crime, it must be dealt with as a crime,"" said Professor Cheryl de la Rey Cheap Air Jordan 1 For Sale , Vice Chancellor at the university, calling on students to desist from vandalizing and damaging property. The university has been closed due to the ongoing student protests and violence. The North West University's Mahikeng campus has also been closed indefinitely after two buildings were burnt earlier this week. Academic activities have been suspended at the Tshwane University of Technology's Soshanguve campuses. At the University of the Free State (UFS), protests forced the Rector, Professor Jonathan Jansen Cheap Air Jordan 1 Top 3 , to resigned. But protesting students said lectures will not resume until management succumbs to students' demands which include an end to outsourcing. News emerged on Friday that the USF has struck with its contract workers that resulted in an end to a chaotic strike. The university issued a short statement in which it said workers were expected back at work next Monday following a successful meeting with the institution's management. ""Earlier today, the management of the University of the UFS reached an agreement with contract workers about negotiations towards outsourcing, as well as their concerns about conditions of employment with their employers,"" the statement said. Some protests have also intensified racial tensions between black and white students. At the UFS Cheap Air Jordan 1 Womens , for example, black students and workers who were disrupting a rugby match were attacked by white students on Monday. Some ""political formations"" might be manipulating the violence for political gains, according to the parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Higher Education. But the Committee did not identify these ""political formations"" . Student leaders belonging to the opposition Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) reportedly led some protests.
