Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

IN THE mid­dle of World Cup ex­cite­ment, about 60 mem­bers of the Anti-Pri­vati­sa­tion Fo­rum gath­ered in Diep­kloof near Soc­cer City yes­ter­day.

“Fifa says that its or­gan­i­sa­tion is not for profit, but in re­al­ity it is a front for sports goods man­u­fac­tur­ers, ad­ver­tis­ing com­pa­nies, tele­vi­sion broad­cast­ers and air­lines that have com­mer­cialised the sport that many peo­ple love and that brings the world to­gether,” the fo­rum said.

The group faced a heavy po­lice pres­ence along Nas­rec Road lead­ing to Soc­cer City. – Sapa
