The Claridges safety left uncompromised
The Economic freedom fighters marched from Newtown to Sandton on the 27th of October 2015.
The announcement was made days before the march of over 5000 people took place, staff in the areas that the march would pass through(especially in Sandton) was encouraged to leave before 3pm as the commotion would highly impact the pace of traffic from all transport leaving Sandton.
The march is also reported to be a peaceful march that confronts issues of injustice actions within the systems of higher education, but precautionary measures are to not be discarded.
The protest march started at Beyers Naude Square in Johannesburg CBD to the Chamber of Mines to hand over a memorandum around 10am and to hand another memorandum at the JSE via Oxford and Rivonia Roads at around 4pm.
Although Rivonia road is fairly close to The Claridges area – fortunately the security was not compromised at all; no residents and visitors that were entering and leaving the premises were confronted or harmed in any way.
