Description Cape Town 23 May 2008Following xenophobic attacks and violence which started in Johannesburg and spread to Cape Town, thousands of Capetonians staged a protest outside parliament calling for an end to the attacks on foreign African migrants living in the country. Several million African refugees and migrants (most of them Zimbabwean but many from Congo, Mozambique and elsewhere) fleeing political and economic instability in their home countries, have made their homes in South Africa and Cape Town, seeking a safer and better life. Up to 20 000 have been displaced in Cape Town and are being sheltered in community halls, tent towns, holiday resorts etc until the threats subside and they can either move back to the communities they fled from, or repatriate to their home countries if they so choose.Photo copyright Eric 83 225 9675xenophobia
