Lifesaving South Africa acknowledges the call on social media to host a “Nationwide Peaceful Protest” calling for aquatic users to protest against the closure of the beaches and ocean activities around South Africa.
We would like to note that this call is not authorised and the gathering contravenes the Covid-19 Alert Level 4 authorised activities, as such participants may face legal consequences. We actively call for our members not to participate in the protest.
