Sorry, I couldn’t ignore this.
Hundreds of “angry protesters” abducted the main sluice operator of De Hoop Dam and forced him to open the sluices.
Here’s the link:
I couldn’t find a link in the English media (yet), I guess they’ll catch on a little later today.
They opened the sluices, flooding the area downstream, with no warning to lower-lying areas that housed people and where there was expensive equipment for construction.
They opened the sluices, in the blooming middle of a blooming drought where people are asked to let their gardens die and where farmers hold back on planting because they fear they may lose their seed corn.
Guys, this is a top crime! “Angry protesters” my foot! this is industrial sabotage, and high treason against the country (the country’s inhabitants).
Can we please determine who these **holes are and give them what they want – a life-long state-sponsored holiday in one of our facilities?
Seeing that they deliberately put innocent people’s lives in danger (there is no report of deaths (yet)), they are also guilty of attempted murder. Can they please be judged for this? Can our spineless government please make an example of these terrorists? “Angry protesters” …! I guess Jack the Ripper was also only an angry protester.
