South African police stop anti-vaccine protest in Cape Town

South African police stopped an anti-vaccine protest at the Sea Point Promenade in Cape Town. The protesters were issued with a warning to disperse for not wearing masks in a public place. South African COVID-19 regulations make it mandatory for masks to be worn in public. Vaccination in South Africa is not mandatory, however, some people are not supportive of vaccine passports. A protester who appears in the clip says: "It's because of freedom of speech and my freedom to say no to things that are not right. It's my body, I have a choice". The crowd peacefully dispersed a few minutes after the police issued a final warning. The protesters vowed to continue their opposition to the vaccine and the implementation of vaccine passports. The clip was filmed today (October 2).
