Hundreds are expected to demonstrate in Pretoria on Saturday, July 18, to denounce recent farm attacks in Pretoria and its surrounding areas. Protesters will gather at noon (local time) and march from Pretoria's Point of Fairview to the Union Buildings. According to protest organizers, within the last month, several farm attacks have taken place in the area including robberies, rape, and killings. Organizers have also called for the gatherings on Saturday to remain peaceful.
Associated business and transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence are to be anticipated near all demonstration sites.
Individuals in Pretoria are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
