Watch: A group of people have staged a protest outside the Drakenstein Municipality building in Paarl under the banner of "concerned Drakenstein Residents".

It was preceded by an anti-racism march through the Boland town.

The group also demanded better services for poor


communities.

The protest is part of a series of events organised by the Khoisan Defiance campaign in an effort to give a voice to marginalised people.

One of the leaders, Bazil Jacobs says they want the current indigent grant system scrapped.

He says, "The new indigent policy doesn't speak to the needs of our people.

The municipality didn't come with the community process.

They came and enforced this new policy.

Our people are staying in flats that are sub-standard and they want people


to pay for the flats.""https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t15.5256-10/70228449_2518518728376783_3158995733797928960_n.jpg?_nc_cat=104&_nc_oc=AQn8jrxFzrMHVKe2AzceN9SQGoEDaTPGt1ZaZTW8h22kOoa1yz9mLPi17BmeI7Dj88Y&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&oh=60a6193718e573246ba2d6f3693cb337&oe=5E346F0D"
