The organisers of a protest march to Rondebosch Common in Cape Town has said that they have no intention of cancelling the march.
 
The planned march is illegal because the City of
Cape Town has not granted the organisers permission.

According to the City, organisers have not followed the correct procedure in applying for the march to take place on Saturday.

One of the organisers are adamant that the march will take place.

Demonstrators will gather outside the Athlone Stadium from
today.

City of
Cape Town officials have instructed authorities to try to prevent the demonstration in a diplomatic way.

The protest is targeted to highlight the plight of the poor and unemployed.

This is bad journalism. The march was legal and was illegally banned by the City.

For more on why people were marching and why the City has gone against the Gatherings Act thereby breaking the law, see the following article:
