Youth of Orange farm in conjunction with the EFF march to the local police station
The gender based violence towards women and children has become a serious problem which the youth has decided to take a stand against, saying enough is enough. The march started at Orange farm Multipurpose centre to the police station. Their concern is that they now living in fear because they cannot trust any man around them. Young and old Women are being killed, raped and the perpetrators of these crimes are out there going freely around like hunting lions, looking for another woman to rape and kill yet police are doing nothing about it. The EFF (Economic freedom fighters) decided to support the youth in their march and making an effort that peace and security for the women out there is being served by our police officers whom the community depend on for their security.

The deputy station commander could not address or say anything to the crowd because he had no authority to do so.
