South African Peaceful Protest: Unity in Diversity Against Crime, Racism & Farm Murders / Xenophobia:
With recent tensions in South Africa and the devastating high crime statistics, we, the South African diaspora, feel compelled to join hands to make an international stand. On 27 April 1994 over 19 million people voted in South Africa's first free and democratic elections with a hope of ending all human rights violations and bringing peace, prosperity and social cohesion to a damaged nation. Human rights is the culmination of the right to life and safety, the need for justice, tolerance, mutual respect and dignity yet 21 years on and citizens, residents and migrants in South Africa continue to suffer harrowing atrocities.
On 13 June 2015 at 11h00 we will congregate outside South Africa House, Trafalgar Square, London for a static march. We welcome South Africans and non-South Africans from all walks of life who are concerned for the safety and future of the country. We will not tolerate any signage, clothing or behaviour that reflects the Apartheid era, racism or any kind of negative attitude. We will be accompanied by metro police and we will respectfully ask any person(s) to leave if they do not adhere to our decorum. This event is non-political and the organisers have no hidden political agenda. We do however encourage you to bring your Proudly South African attire and positivity!
The aim of this peaceful protest is to highlight the frustrations expressed by thousands of South Africans both in and outside the country on an international level. We, the people of South Africa, will call upon President Zuma and the South African government to stop being apathetic towards the growing underbelly of anger in our country and provide calls to action which address the core underlying issues that have led to the current state of the nation.
