Natjoints arrested over 550 people for crimes like public violence, intimidation, and theft during the EFF’s national shutdown protest. As reported by HeraldLIVE, Gauteng recorded the most arrests at 149.
The EFF in Gauteng plans to hold pickets outside police stations and courts to demand the release of those detained. The party accused the police of infringing on citizens’ constitutional right to demonstrate and express their views by arresting peaceful protesters.
The EFF has called on authorities to release innocent citizens and stop intimidating demonstrators who hold the government accountable. They have observed the cases since the march began, noting the law enforcement officials’ brutality and unrecorded wrongful arrests.
