Is this South African Solidarity ?

Police in Johannesburg have raided the city's Central Methodist Church, arresting around 1,500 homeless people and Zimbabwean refugees. Dozens of police, some heavily armed, raided the church compound rounded up those there and took them away. This according to the BBC .

Paul Verryn, the church's bishop, described the raid as a violation of the sanctity of the church. He said, the way the police handled those they arrested during the raid was a clear violation of the rights of the Zimbabweans .

As South Africa's own economy starts to strain, the government has begun to stiffen its attitude to refugees. An estimated three million Zimbabweans are believed to be living in South Africa.
