The march by the Democratic Alliance (DA) to Beyers Naude Gardens in the Johannesburg CBD was cut short after it was intercepted by a group of African National Congress (ANC) supporters that attacked the legal march with bricks and forced the police to intervene, 12 February 2014.
The irony of this sign seems lost on this ANC member after they violently stopped a legal march by the DA to Beyers Naude Square in Johannesburg.
I shot this video with a GoPro camera mounted on the lens hood of my Nikon D700.

This community had no hospital anymore, but sick and injured people still needed help. The roof had been blown off during the typhoon and the doctors had left. The team toiled in unbearable heat to get that roof sorted and the small field clinic took up the slack treating hundreds of people. Had Rescue SA not been there, many people would have still been sick, injured, medicine-less and dying.
The young drowning victim that was lost on the final day of the mission, could not be saved. Rescue SA's doctors refused to give up, until there was no other option. This proved their success to me, for that child would have died regardless, but their efforts gave him some dignity in death, that he otherwise would not have had.
