Cape Town - An anti-rape rally organised by Cosatu on Sunday featured representatives from various organisations addressing a crowd of about 100 people on the Grand Parade.
Speakers called on communities to make an effort to put an end to the abuse and rape of women and children.
Cosatu’s Tony Ehrenreich said Capetonians must unite to put an end to the scourge.
“Ending violence against women and children requires all people coming together,” he said.
SA Students Congress provincial secretary Monwabisi Luthuli called on society to actively participate in anti-rape rallies.
“We call on young people to unite and realise that democracy does not include such violent crimes, and that young people can help put an end to this devilish tendency,” Luthuli said.
The rally comes after the brutal rape and murder of Bredasdorp teenager Anene Booysen that shocked the nation.
