Whilst the rest of the world continues on, oblivious to the pain and suffering of those less fortunate who face not only starvation, and now a
pestilence of which one is known as HIV which will cause AIDS, some who are left to fight for their lives are also fighting for the drugs that could
(AP) Police fired rubber bullets and smoke grenades to disperse hundreds of protesters demanding the government speed up the provision of
life-prolonging AIDS drugs, officials said Wednesday.
More than 20 people were injured — one of them seriously — in the melee Tuesday at Frontier Hospital in Queenstown in the Eastern Cape, according
to activists from the Treatment Action Campaign.
Police said there were no casualties at the scene, but some people may have been hurt in the stampede of people fleeing the area.
Hospital staff called the police when protesters forced their way into wards, intimidated staff and disrupted services, Health Department spokesman
Sizwe Kutelo said. The TAC maintained the demonstration was peaceful.
Police spokesman Superintendent Gcinikaya Taleni said organizers did not notify authorities of their intention to demonstrate, as required.
Welcome to the world ignorance and oblivion has brought you.
These people are facing a life without everything, everything you and I take for granted.
Imagine living without food for weeks, then think of what it would be like to discover you have AIDS?
This is ignorance on a supreme scale, NO one really cares, why?
Because they are Africans?
If they were white and more near you would you understand their struggle for medications that could save them for a little longer? Or would you just
shoot them and be done with it?
Against a people seeking relief from an AIDS pandemic, which kills more than 600 people a day in South Africa alone.
I know, you don't care, it does not directly affect you or anyone very close to you. though it could one day.
Now back to your regular discussions. Move along here, nothing to see, just some poor Africans fighting for there lives, if starvation alone does not
interest any of you, why would people facing the infections that cause AIDS?
Save the drugs for the good white people!
