Description: This is a digital born photograph of a section of the Anti-Xenophobia march in 2008 going through Hillbrow. The march attracted almost 5000 people from all walks of life and was an important factor in showing solidarity with immigrants, countering any continued xenophobic attacks and sending a strong message to the South African government to be more pro-active in combating xenophobia within its own ranks and policies.
