Four land rights activists have appeared in court after being arrested during farmworker protests in the Western Cape.

Mercia Andrews, Denia Jansen, Margaret Visser and Riaan Willemse, of the Mawubye Land Rights Forum, face charges of incitement, intimidation and participating in an illegal gathering.

Meanwhile, Andrews has been quoted by the media as saying that no intimidation was used to encourage others to join a march they were participating in. She added that about 450 marchers gathered peacefully and are moving from farm to farm in the region.
