ANC YOUTH LEAGUE STATEMENT ON THE RECENT XENOPHOBIC ATTACKS

Issued by the ANC Youth League, 14 May 2008


The ANC Youth league calls for calm in the wake of the recent attacks on foreign nationals.

The violent attacks and damage of property may compromise the genuine grievances that people might have, and the people's struggle can be hijacked by wrong elements.

We call on communities both organised and unorganised to remain vigilant and protect the integrity of their struggle's, and not to resort to violence.
