Pro-Palestine marchers call on SA govt to downgrade embassy in Israel

Demonstrators say they support global calls denouncing Trump’s decision, and want South Africa to do the same.

CAPE TOWN – Pro-Palestine demonstrators have called on the South African government to downgrade its embassy in Israel.

Wednesday’s march through the streets of Cape Town came amid a series of demonstrations around the world against US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Hundreds of Capetonians joined religious leaders in a march to Parliament.

Their message was clear – Jerusalem is not Trump’s to give away.

The African National Congress’s Western Cape Secretary General Faiez Jacobs says they will call on the party’s delegates to vote in favour of downgrading the South African embassy in Israel at the elective conference this weekend.

“In the Western Cape we passed resolution and many of our branches in our country is supporting the downgrade of the Israeli embassy.”

Demonstrators say they support global calls denouncing Trump’s decision and want South Africa to do the same.
