Abstract
South Africa has one of the highest rates of protest in the world. The country experiences a strong protest culture, with more than two million people protesting
every year (Plaut, Behind the Marikana massacre. New Stateman. Retrieved from https://www.newstatesman.com/blogs/world-affairs/2012/08/behind-marikanamassacre, 2012). Such frequent occurrences of protest action make some critics assert that the country may be the protest capital of the world (Bhardwai 2017, Runciman, SA is the protest capital of the world. Pretoria News, 22 May 2017. Retrieved 26 Oct 2017 from https://www.iol.co.za/pretoria-news/sa-is-protestcapital-of-the-world-9279206, 2017).
