Jason Whitehead, a Plettenberg Bay resident, has contacted The Citizen, describing the protests as “anarchy” and as “riots” which are “out of control”.

According to him, “access in and out of Plett is highly restricted” due to the protest action.

He also describes “fires being started all over Plett during a gale force heat wave” and “petrol bombs being thrown into residential areas”.

Whitehead does not feel that the police are doing enough, claiming that there isn’t enough police presence and that mayor Peter Lobese is “nowhere to be found”.

Businesses being looted and burnt down, residential areas are in the firing line of fires being started by rioters and the police are doing nothing. Plett is currently experiencing gale force berg winds which are fanning the flames directly to the residents.

Just heard on the news that the N2 is closed at Plett. How the feck are people allowed to just shut off a national Road? Bring in the army and let them do some work and earn their pay

Police don't enforce the law... they just watch.

A friend got caught up in the protecting, driving along the N2 through Plett. Car pelted with rocks, loads of dents and windows smashed.

This sounds like the type of vision that Willem Petzer is talking about on YouTube
Don't even know who that is, will check it out. This is by no means something I want to do, But its becoming very clear that white people are not welcome here, action speak louder than words and its time each and every person realizes this.
This is Ramaphosa's famous "frog quote" in full affect (for the 1 or 2 that has not read it yet http://www.politicsweb.co.za/opinion/the-anc-and-ramaphosas-1994-plan-for-the-whites)

Honestly speaking, we are past the point of no return. Nothing will save this country. We have too much dept, Just look at this Eskom BS, broke municipalities, corruption, maladministration etc, how will this ever be fixed?, We will continue being downgraded by rating agencies, the middle class will be squeezed until nothings left, Racial tension will increase since they are told everything thats wrong in this country is the 4 million white people that's left fault. (Then they say the white genocide is not genocide, "its crime", yet they sing things like kill the boer, burn white dolls etc.)
White people should start realizing turning a blind eye is not going to make this go away. Something needs to be done, we need a plan.

im wondering if the saps brief is to just watch that *** when its happening. is this level of protests happening countrywide or just here?

my foilhat is wondering if the saps brief here is to just watch. surely we must have official units who can shut this down when its picked up.

i watched a video of a group of like 15 protesters burning tires and dancing while shutting down some main road in constantia (??) with police watching. now 15 protesters should be able to be shutdown without breaking a sweat for the appropriate unit. why is it being allowed to happen?

where are the water canons? the armored police carriers? or is this protesting OK because its happening in the western cape?

One would think after the fires of last year these morons would even be scared to light a fag anywhere close to the garden route, never mind starting a fire.

That's because factually there is no white genocide in progress or signs of one in the making. Poor black people are far and away more likely to be victims of violence or murder. And very little is being done about it. So based on the same reasoning used to claim there is a white genocide we must conclude that in fact there is a black genocide in progress.

Nothing will save this country.
That's quite obviously not true. South Africa can certainly climb out of the mess. Whether it will no-one can really predict.
