- The Economic Freedom Fighters recently won a legal battle against Brackenfell High School
- The school had approached the Western Cape High Court in an attempt to interdict the party against protesting near its premises
- The party is pleased that the 'shallow attempts to defend racism' at the school has failed
The Economic Freedom Fighters have signalled their pleasure at their legal victory at Brackenfell High School after the Western Cape High Court ruled in the party's favour.
Reacting to the verdict on Wednesday, the EFF declared the outcome historic in a statement on the subject:
"In a historic judgement, the desire to operate as a silo from the broader country, by those who yearn to return us to a repressive Apartheid past was crushed, and the interdict sought by Brackenfell High and their racist collaborators dismissed."
The EFF insists that the judgement is also a condemnation of the SA Police Service, who had attempted to prevent the party from protesting outside the school:
"The judgement is therefore also a condemnation on the SA Police Services who inexplicably prevented EFF members from continuing with their protest at the school."
"These so-called police officers did so by unleashing unwarranted terror on protestors so that they could return to the braai stands of their masters and receive pats on the back from racists."
The party is adamant that they will return to the school as a matter of principle to ensure that racism is accounted for:
"There is no racist militia or arrogant Western Cape government which enables racism, that will stop us from returning to Brackenfell High School and the town in general. We will do this to ensure that racism is accounted for and that the beret of the EFF which was stolen by terrorists is returned to its rightful owners."
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that the Western Cape High Court has dismissed Brackenfell High School's urgent application.
The school had attempted to obtain an interdict to prevent the Economic Freedom Fighters from staging protests outside the school in the future.
This response had followed the demonstrations that made headlines in November which saw police blocking supporters from moving closer to the school.
