S. Africa:Protesters trash H&M stores over racist image

Protestors  ransacked H&M stores in South Africa expressing their anger over a “racist” promotional image on the retailer’s website. 

The demonstrations were organised by the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) opposition party after H&M issued a picture of a black child modelling a hoodie with the slogan “coolest monkey in the jungle”.

Police used rubber bullets to disperse a mob from one of six shops targeted in Johannesburg and elsewhere in Gauteng province Saturday.
