Protesters blockade the R55 in Olievenhoutbosch.  They were angry about residents from Mooiplaats who was to be moved to Olievenhoutbosch.  According to them 10 000 people in Olievenhoutbosch are still waiting on houses.  We we allowed into the protest by the community in the morning to photograph and talk to people.  Later the morning we were prevented from entering and were blocked by protesters to film or take pictures.  They said they were scared that police would id them from the pics and arrest or harass them at a later stage.  After much negotiating we were allowed to photographed the car that protesters had turned over earlier.  We we advised to leave soon after.
