Our Protest is not Xenophobic – Protesters tell BLF

The Mamelodi Concerned Residents (MCR) who are set for a peaceful protest on February 24 say their protest is not xenophobic.

They voice the stance at a meeting with the Black First Land First (BLF) movement recently.

BLF advised the group at a recent meeting to see other Africans living in South Africa as brothers and sisters and not as enemies.

In their usual pan-African slant, BLF advocated that Africans should come together to fight the common enemy – the White Capitalist.

MCR cleared the air that their protest is geared toward making the department of Home Affair stop issuing asylum permit to Africans who are not qualified.

The group also wants the Home Affairs to control the traffic of Africans who flock into South Africa.

MCR believe other Africans take the jobs that South Africans could be doing. They also believe that asylum permits should not be issued to Nigerians, Zimbabweans, Pakistanis and other foreign nationals except there is war in their countries.

BLF believe South Africans and other Africans need deep seated education on African unity and pan-Africanism this time more than ever.
