Might have been an ANC assassination attempt on someone in the land and housing struggle spaces I spend time in, couple days ago. Hoping I'll be able to get through to them today and see what some of my groups can do.

Do activists get assassinated a lot where you live?

Ended up being super interesting. I don't think it was an assassination attempt, but a precise move by local government to steal their tech to gain access to their conversations and contacts and plans.

This person's a leader of a substantial movement of land occupiers and direct action types that emerged in the pandemic. Big swathes of land now covered with shacks, set up with stolen water and electricity, with areas given names like Pandemic and Covid-19.

In the US the none white ones have tho the white ones are beat up or imprisoned.

It is the same here. EDIT: Oh I misread that. Even less happens to white people here.

I think being in a non developed country who is protesting corporations from a developed country have the highest risk of assassination.
