South Africa - reclaim our streets

Issue section: 

Activists in Johannesburg are organising their local communities to oppose the recent violent attacks on foreigners there, Silumko Radebe from the Anti Privatisation Forum in Alexandra reports.

Tensions in South Africa have led to xenophobic attacks on our brothers and sisters from other countries, particularly against Zimbabweans and Somalis who live with us in our townships and communities.

We feel that as South Africans it is important to bring together a broad coalition of every civil society organisation, political organisation, faith-based organisation and the labour movement to reclaim our streets. We want to say that we condemn the attacks on the poor, especially the working class from other countries.
