Student uprising

This monument was put up in commemoration of the students who protested February 20, 1982, on the planned date of the Uffo trial. The students were trying to save the lives of their teachers and the other arrested intellectuals. One student was shot to death during the first day of the protest. His name was Barre Elmi Ahmed. Thanks to these protests the regime changed the death sentences to prison sentences.

This project is also in honour of all those who participated in the self-help scheme mobilization in 1981 but who were not sentenced to prison terms.
