Passop marching for papers

People Against Suffering Oppression and Poverty (Passop) hosted a march today to protest against the slow process of granting asylum documentation by the South African Department of Home Affairs. About 100 immigrants marched to Parliament, making their voices heard and demanding that they be granted their papers. They also called for an end to the infringement upon their human rights. Recently immigration officials have been patrolling and stopping anyone they thought to be foreign and demanded to see their papers. The officials would then harass them if they can’t produce their papers on the spot.
