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".

He proudly tweeted out pictures of the damage done to H&M stores.

The retailer had used a black child to model a sweatshirt with the slogan "coolest monkey in the jungle". Many people accused the global chain store of racism.

"The time of apologies for racism are over", he said.

Eyewitness reports also indicated that EFF supporters had protested at the H&M Waterfront store.

The Sandton Chronicle reported Police Captain Granvile Meyer said: 'The EFF supporters have caused damage inside the [H&M] store.

General manager of the Menlyn Park shopping centre Olive Ndebele confirmed the skirmishes.
