Protest against rapists and Women abuse in Makhanda

The Unemployed Peoples’ Movement marched against rape on August 27 from Soccer City (Fingo Square) in Makhanda (Grahamstown).

The march was led by rape survivors.

The protestors first marched on the police station because the UPM sees the police as rape apologists as they do not investigate alleged rapists properly and do not support rape survivors.

The march then proceeded to Rhodes University where they will protest against the fact that the university management have never properly investigated the Reference List of names of alleged campus rapists.

From there, the march protest moved outside the magistrate’s court, and then to the Makana municipality where they protested about the fact that women have to have sex with certain officials to get jobs. We are also protesting against the patriarchal nature of government in society.
