South African police on Sunday fired rubber bullets and stun grenades at a protest against migrant workers in Johannesburg, which drew some 200 people, many of them unemployed. News24 reports that a simultaneous demonstration took place in the Alexandra township, north of Johannesburg, where around 100 anti-immigration protesters tore down stalls belonging to traders, who were described by the demonstrators as “foreigners”. Meanwhile on Saturday, police used a water cannon against protesters in a poor district of Johannesburg, who were demanding the departure of migrant workers.
