Comet protest

A  protest by residents of the Comet and Angelo informal settlements near Reiger Park in Boksburg, South Africa. They blocked a main road with burning tires, and other barricades. They are protesting about their living conditions and basic services. They say they have had no electricity or water for over a year.
During a skirmish with the police, this young protester was hit on the head with either a rubber bullet or a stun grenade from the police.
