Will EFF be protesting at Hoërskool Uitsig?
According to a report published by Jacaranda FM, a battalion from the Red Berets will descend on the high school and shut down proceedings as early as 11:00, at the start of the new week.

Here’s what prompted the outrage
The furore that fueled the call for protests came from a video that surfaced on social media, showing a pupil clad in EFF regalia being manhandled by the school’s security.
According to the person who posted the video that was retweeted by EFF leader Julius Malema, the pupil was allegedly kicked out of school for wearing political gear on career day.
“His dreams (sp) is to be a politician one day, he was forcefully removed by the security forces,” the poster wrote in a tweet.
Here is the full clip of the altercation that took place between the EFF-clad pupil and the school’s security:
