Even Shebeen owners have trouble mustering up decent numbers for protests.
Several hundred shebeen owners and workers marched to the Western Cape legislature in central Cape Town on Tuesday in protest against proposed new liquor legislation, said police.

Superintendent Andre Traut said shebeen owners had originally applied to have 12 000 people take part, but on Tuesday only 600 people arrived to march from Keizergracht to the legislature, where a memorandum was handed over.

Their action concerned the Western Cape Liquor Act, which was approved by the provincial legislature in November last year.

I guess business just isn't cut out for take-it-to-the-streets type protest action. We probably need to stick to lobbying.
