[cape_town] - Armed protesters can't expect any leniency

  |   Cape_Townnews

The tragic shooting of a student earlier in the week (at the Durban University of Technology), allegedly by security guards, has reference.

I’m sure his family has the condolences of all peace-loving South Africans. That said, we need to understand that although the right to demonstrate or protest publicly for one’s constitutional rights is a given in our country, there is no right – given or implied – to the carrying out of this protest through the violent destruction of property, the physical harming of, or impedance upon the rights of, others.

Where these basic guidelines are crossed over by either party, protesters or opponents, the inevitable will happen. Remember Marikana?...
