The EFF has today released a statement to condemn the actions of the woman that drew her gun at EFF protestors yesterday.
The party has described the woman as being a “psychotic white woman”.
The party also remains innocent and is adamant that their protests remain peaceful and the gun being taken out was not justified.
“The Economic Freedom Fighters condemns in the strongest terms the psychotic white woman who drew out a gun against members of the EFF in Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape while they were engaged in a peaceful protest against Clicks. The woman pulled out the firearm after provoking EFF members, and the fact that there has been no outrage at against the branding of a gun against unarmed black people reveals that black life in this country does not matter” says EFF
The party has commended its members for protesting peacefully and maintaining calm while “their lives were being threatened”.
In the statement, the party has said that going forward they should apply double the violence if they are met with violence.
“We urge all fighters and ground forces to meet any such threats of violence with double the violence and aggression. We cannot allow racists to openly threaten our lives without consequence, especially in a country of hypocrites who continue to condemn non-existent violence from the EFF while ignoring incidents of racists and threatening black lives with assassination and guns.” says EFF
The party has said that they can no longer rely on the Police to protect them so they will take matters into their own hands it seems.
“The time of being passive with racists and violent people has come to an end” says EFF
