There is a serious lack of service delivery in some parts of the cape and that is why the ANCYL is able to do what they do.
Try going to a middle class suburb to incite people to violence over lack of service delivery - obviously it won't work because the middle class actually have service delivery.
I do NOT condone violence or the incitement of violence by anyone, neither do I blame apartheid, I'm just pointing out that the environment is one that supports protest and makes the incitement of violence ridiculously easy. Improve service delivery to an extent where the ANCYL's cries fall on deaf ears - that is the only solution. And while we can blame the ANCYL for inciting violence (and hopefully punish those responsible) we cannot blame them for lack of service delivery - that blame falls squarely at the door of the DA.
Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself. I am large, I contain multitudes.
I wonder if these protesters understand that the ANCYL are sending them out with the hope hat they're fired upon, injured, and killed...?
I am shocked at how quickly and easily people in this thread start promoting the killing of others. Is life really that cheap to you?
If is when people have no respect for life. If someone threw a petrol bomb at you would you like to calmy try and talk them out of it.
It should be if you threaten my life with a petrol bomb, you die!
Peacefull protests are fine - everyone has the right to protest. But when it turns violent, then that's a different matter!
