What are the #BlackMonday protests?

The demonstrators are wearing black to show support for the 70 murdered farmers who lost their lives since the start of 2017. The final straw came when Stellenbosch wine farmer Joubert Conradie was shot dead in his residence last week Tuesday.

Along with the #BlackMonday movement, there is also the Genoeg is Genoeg (Enough is Enough) sister campaign to taking place in the Western Cape today. All together, it is estimated that some 10,000 citizens gathered for the morning protest in Klapmuts, before moving on to the city centre.

We are aware this is a highly divisive topic, and we’d love to hear from you. Do you think the protesters have gone too far by showing their support with the ‘apartheid flag’?
