Students of the 2015 LLM/MPhil (Human Rights and Democratisation in Africa) class speak out about the recent xenophobic attacks in South Africa.

Background to the campaign:

  • In April 2015 a new wave of xenophobic attacks were launched against foreigners in South Africa.
  • In 2008 about 62 people were killed as a result of xenophobic attacks in South Africa.
  • The Burning Man, one of the victims of the 2008 attacks, became a reference point for demanding justice.
  • Still, as many as 8 people have died so far in the April 2015 attacks.
