The Total Shutdown movement has called for a protest in Cape Town on Wednesday, September 25. Participants plan to block major roads - including highways in and out of the central business district - between 05:00 to 10:00 (local time) to denounce issues such as crime, unemployment, and gender-based violence and demand that the government take concrete actions to address these issues.
A heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions are expected, as well as an increased demand for train and metro services.
Individuals in Cape Town are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all demonstrations, and anticipate transportation and business disruptions.
