BAN The Bang KZN gathered at Suncoast Pirates Lifesaving Club on the Durban Beachfront recently, to demonstrate against loud explosive fireworks.
The event highlighted the issues around wide-spread loud fireworks, particularly the drastic affect on sensitive people and animals.
It was the culmination of a lot of effort from animal rescue groups and firework ban initiatives. There are nearly 6000 supporters in the group and despite the rain, there was a good turnout.
A petition was presented by Judy van der Westhuizen from Khetani Animal Rescue, chairperson of the demonstration and there were talks by many guest speakers.
