Police use rubber bullets to disperse EFF H&M protesters

Swedish retailer H&M

Members of the Economic Freedom Fighters protested and trashed H&M stores in Gauteng on 13 January 2018 after a racist advert sparked outrage.

"Police had to intervene and dispersed the group of protesters by firing rubber bullets", Dlamini said. "At Menlyn police also managed a situation where the protestors had entered the shop and threw things around the shop".

Police officers were on standby at the Kolonnade Mall in Pretoria on Saturday, as members of the opposition Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) went on rampage targeting and trashing the H&M clothing store.

Protesters have stormed H&M stores in South Africa, pushing over mannequins and tearing down racks of clothing after one of the retail giant's ads was branded "racist". "We continue to monitor the situation closely and will open the stores as soon as the situation is safe again", the spokesperson said, adding that no staff or customers had been injured in the protests.

"We are here to tell them". "We are here to inform them, if you want to undermine the black people in this country, these are the results". The H&M signage outside the shop had been broken and red fragments were still on the floor. "If they are not going to close the shop, they must just know we are going to be here nearly every day, starting from today", he said.

"This shop must close".
