#NOTOXENOPHOBIA prend la rue à Johannesburg : De la répression étatique du mouvement au rassemblement autour d’une cause légitime

Abstract : #NoToXenophobia Takes to the Streets of Johannesburg: From Government Repression of the Movement to the Rallying for a Legitimate Cause

In 2015, South Africa was struck once again by xenophobic attacks, echoing the similar events of May 2008. This violence triggered major protests throughout the country. The article considers the anti-xenophobia movements that took place during this crisis. This ethnographic study, with photographic illustrations, looks closely at three protest marches held in Johannesburg. The first protest march was a local success that initiated the movement while the third one was a huge national gathering at the peak of the mobilisation. The second one, however, was forbidden the day before and the protesters were violently stopped by the police mid-way into the march. Through a detailed description of this sequence of protests, we can identify three stages to the movement, during which anti-xenophobia becomes successively ‪ ‪avant-garde‪ ‪, dissenting and normalized. The cause’s evolution allows us to better understand the State’s differing responses to these marches.‪
