List of all the protests taking place nationwide on the 7th of April 2017 #PeoplesMarch #SouthAfricaWillRise

Love South Africa

South Africa is outraged by the drastic changes within our Government. Multiple protests are taking place nationwide so citizens can make a stand.

 

South African’s have been called to mobilize against the way the country has been run. Frustrations and anger are high after the cabinet reshuffle and it seems majority of South African’s are ready to stand up and request that the president either step aside or be removed as the leader of the country.

We do not promote our personal political affiliation on Good Things Guy however we are all for the progress of South Africa. We decided to verify and confirm exactly which marches are the official ones to attend on the 7th of April for the Stand still.
