Sitting at home on Tuesday night watching the usual blue news, eNews to be exact. Bar the first 10 minutes being dedicated to coverage of The Spear what came next was the more newsworthy.
At the Industrial Development Corporation’s Nuclear Conference in Sandton, Greenpeace was in attendance where government was discussing the role and planning for SA’s major push into Nuclear power. Greenpeace being its normal bravado self, had a massive demonstration that really had me on the edge of my seat.
What we witnessed was the security staff of the venue manhandle and completely overreact to the ‘threat’ that Greenpeace brings…how ironic.
It’s actually very funny. On the real though. Should we by now have had security on special training to deal with non-violent protest? Think Andries Tatane, Louis Mabokel at the recent Goodman Gallery defacing and almost every authoritive apprehension during apartheid.
We be angry people.
