JOHANNESBURG - Economic Freedom Fighters’ (EFF) leader Julius Malema has defended the EFF’s protests at H&M stores around Gauteng and the Western Cape, saying the humiliation of black people should not be allowed to continue. Addressing the EFF ground forces forum in Westenburg in Polokwane, Malema says the protest has taught the store a lesson. “No one should make jokes about the dignity of black people and is left unattended to. We make no apology about what the fighters did today against that store called H&M.” He says no one must be allowed to humiliate black people because of their skin colour. “We are not going to allow anyone to use the colour of our skin to humiliate us, to exclude us. We are black we are proud, we are black we are beautiful. We are black and we are not ashamed of being black.” Source
Two outlets of Swedish retailer Hennes & Mauritz AB in South Africa were trashed in an anti-racism protest by the opposition Economic Freedom Fighters party on Saturday, broadcaster eNCA reported. The targeted stores are in shopping malls in Johannesburg’s financial district, Sandton, and the capital, Pretoria, eNCA reported on its website, showing pictures of mannequins and clothes scattered on the floor. This is part of a nationwide protest by the EFF against an ad for a child’s sweater which was seen as racist. Demonstrations were also taking place at other malls in the Gauteng province, eNCA said. H&M this week pulled the garment in question from its stores and apologized. An image in its online store showed a black child modeling a hoodie with the text “coolest monkey in the jungle,” causing a social-media storm and prompting Canadian musician The Weeknd to end his collaboration with the Stockholm-based company.
