SOUTH AFRICA: WHEN MISCONCEPTION LEADS TO VIOLENCE

Since more than two weeks migrants are under the attacks of xenophobic groups.

The events begun the last month in Durban after that the Zulu leader Goodwill Zwelithin asked to ”foreign to pack their bags and go home”.

After that armed groups attacked immigrants shops forcing hundreds of people to leave their home and find shelters in provisional structures carried out by voluntary associations.

Migrants, which majority is composed by asylum seekers and refugees, are accused to steal the job to South-African people and to be responsible of the economic crisis and the increasing level of criminality.

Right now 7 people have been killed and more than 5,000 are displaced. Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi are organizing programs for the return of their citizens, while in different countries of Africa, including Nigeria, protests and reprisals against south-Africans are increasing.

Unfortunately finding the Scapegoating for high unemployment and inequality in migrants is nothing new. In 2008, 62 people were killed in xenophobic violence across Johannesburg's township.  In January this year, six people died as looters rampaged through Soweto Township.


What we ask to the South-African government is to cease the violence and to ensure to migrants protection and assistance.

Violence is grounded on fake information about migrants and their role in the society. Campaigns for reducing prejudices and misconceptions are thus strongly required
