EFF march for 'Economic Freedom' against financial institutions.

Julius Malema, the leader of The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) accompanied by party leaders in Newton passed through Braamfontein and headed to Sandton.

The members of the party gathered from many districts for what they call “Economic Freedom March” on 27th day of October, 2015.
The march began at the South African Reserve Bank in Newton, and a stop-by at the chambers of mines and finally at the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) in Sandton.

Among the demands that the party asked is “living wages” for mines workers. In a statement issued by Malema that “every company must have at least 100 students they are sponsoring their education in South Africa and the minimum wages of a domestic worker must be R4, 500.”

A member of JSE tried to barricade the peaceful marchers from getting entrance into the premises of JSE and that member was accused as a racist by Julius Malema.

The memorandum of EFF was welcomed by Nicky Newton-King, the CEO of JSE and promised to consider it.
