Several thousand students, academics, researchers and support staff joined forces during a march and rally at UCT today to express their collective outrage at violent crime in South Africa. 

The march was tilled we say enough. 

Over the past few weeks, the Western Cape has been rocked by several deaths of young women, who were gang-raped and murdered. 

UCT’s Media Liaison officer Mologadi Makwela said protesters waved posters were calling for an end to rape and murder, while others carried posters commemorating UCT students and academics who have been victims of crime over the past few years.

Makwela said the protests was organised to show UCT’s outrage following the recent gang rape and murder of Aneen Boysen and Ge Audrey Green.
