No Guy Fawkes

Today, Numerous birds and animals wild and domestic, all over South Africa and the world,  will be traumatised by the needless desire to discharge fireworks in the name of an age old tradition that has nothing whatsoever to do with our South African history......
We applaud the Umhlathuze Municipality for having taken the pleas of its residents and community into consideration and for having banned Guy Fawkes, in it's entirety, 4 years ago

Empangeni and Richards Bay is a Firework Free zone, and our birds and animals will not be subjected to unnecessary  trauma today (5th November)

However Diwali is also being celebrated on the 5th November 2010 but Fireworks may only be discharged between 6 - 9pm on Friday the 5th November to celebrate Diwali -
Guy fawkes remains banned..
