Clicks wins interdict against EFF

CLICKS has won an interim interdict against the Economic Freedom Fighters which blocks it from “intimidating and threatening” Clicks employees, Clicks customers and “inciting violence against the ordinary commercial operations” of Clicks.

Here is part of the ruling barring EFF from demonstrating at Clicks stores:

Clicks wins

Meanwhile EFF supporters are still stationed at some Clicks stores after the ruling. EFF has called for its ground forces to intensify their protests, part of the instruction read,

Clicks wins interdict against EFF over protests
Clicks wins interdict against EFF over protests

Essentially, Clicks has lost in its attempt to interdict the protest action of the EFF as the interdict issued by the court does not speak to the protests being undertaken by the EFF across the country. We will continue to protest across all Clicks outlets until the 11th of September 2020.
