Online detail:
Cape Times, Front Page, Lead Article, Monday, 23 January, ‘Jou Ma Se Office Block” : Transport and Public Works MEC Robin Carlisle faced a barrage of criticism from thousands of Capetonians who marched along Chapman’s Peak Drive yesterday to protest against the R54-million toll plaza and luxury office to be built on national park land. While the organisers had asked for a permit for 500 people, more than 2,000 protesters joined in the march to the site of the proposed new toll plaza. The DA came under fire from many of the protesters, and Carlisle was heckled and booed. He was invited to receive a memorandum addressed to Premier Helen Zille. As he got out of his vehicle, he was surrounded by a placard-carrying crowd. “We voted for you,” shouted James Brodie. “We voted for the DA, but you let us down, china. What happens if we vote for someone else ?” Some of the placards read “DA Carlisle shame on you”, “Protect Chappies from politicians and corporate greed”, “Murray and Robbers don’t steal our land”, “No to Entilini, no to DA”, “SANParks sellout sucks”, “Jou ma se tol!” and “Jou ma se office block”.
