Students march for books in S Africa

Hundreds of students rally in Johannesburg as lack of basic resources in schools is deepening inequality in education.

    Hundreds of South African students have marched in Johannesburg demanding the government provide basic resources to schools.

    They want all South Africa's schools to have water, electricity, textbooks and libraries

    Students played a key role in bringing an end to apartheid, but ongoing inequality in education is forcing a new generation into a struggle of their own.
