Outrageous Sara Baartman ornaments on sale

Nearly 200 years has passed and 16 years after the end of Apartheid South Africa and still the exploitation of Sara Baartman continues. And where is this taking place? In a shop in Johannesburg were china ornaments of Sara Baartman’s body are on sale amongst household wares and “colonial throw-back domestic workers uniforms. This vile and outrageous act must be stopped. The creators, producers and shops selling these products must be challenged and stopped.

I dont have the name of the shop nor the link at present but as soon as I do I will post them and ask people to contact the shop to stop them from being sold.
