City of Cape Town is casting us into darkness
Although the Constitution allows us to let off fireworks, the City of Cape Town removed that right unilaterally without consulting the tens of thousands who annually attend Guy Fawkes with their children and families on Blouberg and other designated beaches.
Guy Fawkes on Cape Town beaches has even featured world wide on BBC world news and is prominently displayed on their Travel Website.
I call on the City of Cape Town to review this decision.
There is so much our City could do to make it more attractive at night. However they take the easy way out without any consultation, casting us into darkness both figuratively and literally.
