Economic Freedom Fighters Protest at Israeli Embassy in South Africa


South Africa’s Economic Freedom Fighters and the African National Congress have protested outside the Israeli embassy in Pretoria, with party leader Julius Malema calling for the embassy’s closure and retailers to remove Israeli-produced goods by October.

The ANC also held a picket, calling for boycotts from Israel in solidarity with Palestinians and a ceasefire in the Middle East. The ANC Women’s League spokesperson resigned last week.
