Description: This is a digital born photograph of a section of the crowd at the Xenophobia march in Hillbrow and the inner city of Johannesburg in 2008. In response to the widespread and violent attacks on immigrant in 2008, the majority of which took place on the Gauteng province, the Anti-Privatisation Forum (APF) together with a range of other social movements, community organisations, NGOs and immigrant associations, formed the Coalition against Xenophobia (CAX). The first activity of CAX was to organise a mass public rally and march in Hillbrow and the inner city of Johannesburg (where large numbers of immigrants reside) in order to send a message of social tolerance, internationalism and social/national inclusivity.
