South Africa’s EFF pickets to demand French withdrawal from Africa

A South African opposition party is protesting to demand that France withdraws from the African continent.

The leftist Economic Freedom Fighters, EFF, chose May 25 to picket at the French Embassy as the African Union marks the AU Day.

A tweet announcing the protest read: “The EFF will picket at the French Embassy on Africa Day, to demand the withdrawal of France from the continent. The meeting point is Magnolia Dell Park, Brooklyn, Tshwane; from where they will march to the embassy.

The EFF has periodically slammed France for its stranglehold over former colonies in West and Central Africa.

Anti-France sentiment has been growing across parts of West Africa with the most recent being in Mali.

Over in Central Africa, protesters were arrested in Chad and an opposition protest in Gabon was banned by government.
