IFP Supporters Looting Street Traders

IFP Supporters Looting Street Traders
Submitted by capdog on Monday, May 28, 2007 - 18:21 |

Despite the DA and IFP's claims to the contrary, we all heard the reports of violence and looting at the march against the name changes. Here's a fantastic picture of some marchers stealing from a street vendor! It was snapped by rogan.w and posted to his flickr account, check the original here.

I personally would be fairly fucking bleak if I was a poor streetside fruit vendor, and some bastard IFP members came parading past with knobkerries, helping themselves to my goods as they went!

And how about their brazen attitude? Never mind the fact that there's a cameraman standing right there! Just grab and run, then disappear into the crowd. That vendor can ill-afford to lose precious stock, and I would imagine that a theft like that would result in the (presumably) honest street trader missing a meal or being unable to provide for a family for the night.

Bastards.

Isn't that twisted? Marching for the supposed good of the community etc and then stealing from the innocent bystander!

Or was the vendor innocent? Maybe he was throwing old fruit at the marchers beacause they were getting in the way of his passing customers!

Or maybe he really didnt give a rat, because he was actually paid by another party, with the supposed thives, to stage this little upset... nothing like a bit of drama and anarchy to tipple the voters...

The party / union / organisation never accepts blame, the looters get away with it - as we've seen with last year's security guard and taxi strikes, as we've seen with this year's renaming march, and as we will no doubt see when the civil servant strike takes place. If Frasier-Moloketi and Vavi don't come to some agreement first, of course.
The leadership never sees these incidents, so they always defend their fine, upstanding, card-carrying comrades. they're always indignant that their organisation should be so maligned in the malicious media, who only seek to undermine them anyway.
Fuck 'em. It's lawlessness and it must be met head-on, not with poncy poncy kid gloves.
I'm starting to think that the nutjob with his private army down in Toti has it right. As the Cardigans sing - 'fight fire with fire.'
Time is past for softly softly. Put the motherfuckers in stocks so we can throw rotten tomatos at them outside City Hall.

I was lucky enough to see Evita's new show last night (she's in town, at the Sneddon theatre for a while). Peter Dirk Uys is a genius. He somehow manages to confront subjects of all our worst fears about SA- from the usual bribery and corruption to more close-to-home favourites of hijacks and street name changes... and uses this as laughter fodder!
It was such good, deep laugh- I dare say almost as much fun as throwing rotten tomatoes at motherfuckers.

Not always, although in most cases you are right

My firm is acting on behalf of Ethekwini Municipality sueing the unions for the damage caused by their members.

Proving they were members and getting witnesses however
is another story..

Usual story hey

No accountability, no cops, no problem, let's all steal

What is unbelievable about it is that they of all people know that the vendors are battling to make a living. Absolute fuckin arseholes. Should stick em in concrete shoes and drop em in the bay with a bag of sardine guts round their necks
