The five protestors who were arrested at the farm workers strike on Tuesday appeared before the court in Swellendam today.

The five people were arrested on a charge of public violence.

Farmworkers in the Western Cape are demanding a R150 living wage and better living conditions on the farms. 

They were all denied bail for the charge of public violence and will have to remain in jail until January the 21st.

Mercia Andrews from the Mawubuye Land Rights Movement said for these five people to be denied bail this was just a way of trying to weaken the strike.
