Police do About-Turn After Charging #TotalShutdown Protesters

A statement released by Rise-Up Against Gender-Based Violence has stated that the conveners of the march to the Union Buildings on August 1 were charged by police for offences related to the protest. This comes after thousands of women and gender non-conforming individuals demonstrated against gender-based violence and femicide.
