Anti-Obama protests outside Johannesburg University-global-annal

News is pouring in that Anti-Obama protesters have gathered outside the University of Johannesburg over the supposed honorary doctorate that the university has planned on giving to Obama.

To control a crowd of hundreds of protesters, Police resorted to rubber bullets and a stun grenade to disperse the protesters waiting for President Obama.

“I feel my rights are being infringed,” said Bilaal Qibr (24), who took part in the protests. “We can’t protest anymore. Personally, I feel like this is an extension of the U.S.”
