James Oatway

Vlakfontein, Mpumalanga Province, South Africa

Close quarters fighting between the Red Ants and a community of people defending their homes illegally built on private land. A member of the Red Ants confronts a man holding a machette during a so-called 'demolition' operation to clear dwellings and evict squatters from land in Vlakfontein. The violent action resulted in the deaths of two people from among the community being evicted. The Red Ants are a controversial private security company often hired to clear squatters from land and so-called 'hijacked' properties.
