Asylum seekers picket for their rights

Asylum seekers in Cape Town are continuing to fight for the Department of Home Affairs to process their applications today.

This after more than 100 refugees stood outside of the SA Rights Commission for assistance on Wednesday. 

The department’s refusal to process new-comers despite two recent Western Cape High Court orders have caused a huge upset among several refugee rights NGOs.

Langton Mariloga from the organisation PASSOP said that more than 40 people have braved the cold weather to raise their concerns.
