The Social Justice Coalition says it will appeal a conviction by the Cape Town Magistrate Court against 21 of its members.
Of the twenty one; eleven were acquitted of all charges. 

SJC’s general secretary Phumeza Mlungwana said exercising our rights is not a crime and that Apartheid laws must change.

Mlungwana said: “We feel that it is unconstitutional to criminalize a gathering or a protest of that nature, that’s why we aim to go further in the high court to challenge the act itself and have it relooked at how it criminalizes protesters .”
