Protest against the first forced removal of Africans in South Africa at the beginning of the 20th century from Cape Town near the docks to Uitvlugt, later called Ndabeni. The occasion for the removals was an outbreak of the plague. Ironically, in the 1920s and 1930s, residents of Ndabeni were once again forced to move, this time to the township of Langa.
