Unemployed South African Youths Attack Immigrant Labourers at a Construction Site in Johannesburg.

South Africans from every corner of the country have come together in an effort to reclaim their country after the government failed to respond to the screams and pleas of residents who are unemployed and famished yet still continue to wander the streets every day.

In recent years, there has been a rise in the number of agitators calling for the deportation of illegal immigrants, the most of whom are involved in unlicensed commerce or services to the disadvantage of the native population.

However, things are starting to take a new direction as a growing number of young people in South Africa are taking it upon themselves to address the problem of unemployment on their own because the government no longer wants to do what needs to be done.

According to a new report, a group of young people from South Africa recently stormed a building site in Mshongo, Johannesburg, where the vast majority of the laborers who are employed there are from other countries (98 percent). In a video that has been going around online, the young people can be seen and heard ordering the workers to leave the location immediately, and the employees all comply with the instruction.

At the time that this report was being compiled, the site's contractor could not be located anywhere on the property.

We are keeping our fingers crossed that the government will take action on this rapidly escalating problem as quickly as they possibly can, before things get completely out of control.
