South African Expats will be picketing outside Bell Pottinger offices tomorrow!

Bell Pottinger Picket

Bell Pottinger will be facing a bit more embarrassment tomorrow as a group of South African expats picket outside their London Offices for all to see!


Bell Pottinger gave an apology after the company was caught in the middle of a scandal for having launched a racially charged propaganda campaign for the benefit of their clients, the Guptas.

The DA Abroad have made plans to picket outside the offices of the UK based PR firm to show them that South Africa is not happy about what they have done. Phumzile Van Damme MP, DA Shadow Minister of Communications has commented on their apology and listed her plans for the picket.

“In truth, it was an admission of guilt and the DA, therefore, encourages all our fellow London-based South Africans to join us between 5 pm and 7 pm to stand up to Bell Pottinger,”

“Sowing racial divisions in our country, which will have lasting implications on the social fabric of our society, cannot be allowed to stand.

“Those responsible must be held accountable for this damaging campaign and the DA will continue to ensure this is done,” – Phumzile Van Damme MP, DA Shadow Minister of Communications

The DA Abroad will be handing over a memorandum demanding that all profits from Gupta business deals be put towards building schools or any developmental non-government organisations in South Africa.

And for everyone else who can’t make the picket tomorrow (whether you’re unable to get there or you live in South Africa), use your online voice to stand together… simply post the hashtag #BellPottingerMustFall #SouthAfricaWillRise
