Demonstrators against GBV teargassed at Parliament

Hundreds of young people have gathered at the Parliament building demanding to hand over a petition to the Speaker of the National Assembly.
The group started their protest this morning at Zoo Park and demand immediate action against the senseless killing of women in Namibia.
The group has refused to meet Deputy Speaker Loide Kasingo and promised to disperse only after they meet with the Speaker, Peter Katjavivi.
The Namibian Police's Special Field Force have been called in and have blocked entry to Parliament.
The Special Field Force teargassed the group but they remain unmoved.
