Six people were arrested in Gugulethu for public violence yesterday following a standoff with police.

Residents were protesting against the opening of Gugulethu Square.

Residents and members of the Anti-Eviction Campaign are opposing the malls employment policy.They say they want at least 80% of mall employment to come from the community.

Police fired rubber bullets to disperse a group of about 50 residents who emptied waste bins and stoned police during an illegal strike.

One person was also shot in the head with a rubber bullet.
