Hundreds of people marched in Sea Point in Cape Town to protest against the Covid-19 vaccines on Sunday. They say they want their constitutional right to freedom of association respected.

The group has decried, what they say is information censorship against voices that do not accept the dominant narrative on COVID-19 and vaccines.

The marchers say that they don't believe the number of deaths that are reported by governments throughout the world and claim that the testing protocols are wrong for infectious diseases. 

One protestor said:

The PCR test figures are wrong. We have got a huge amount of people with TB in this country. 150 people were dying of TB every day, nobody started wearing masks because of that.

She added that, "If you have a testing protocol that is not accurate and then you have people that have maybe got TB but are being wrongly tested to say they have got Covid, and then put on a ventilator it could kill them"

However, Mark Van Der Heever from the Western Cape's Health Department says that the group will say anything to defame the vaccine and tests.

The PCR test is considered the Golden standard internationally which is why our country and our province make use of the PCR tests to detect Covid positive cases as well as the antigen rapid test that's also available within a few hours and together the two of them form part of our mechanism to pick up Covid positive cases so that we can interact and engage with those patients quickly.

The group says that their constitutional rights to freedom of association are being curtailed and that they do not accept the state of disaster that has been declared.

They say they don't want to be subjected to a curfew, wearing of masks and the narrative of forced vaccines in order to access public places. The group also blames the media for the dominant narrative regarding the Covid-19 vaccine.
