SA woman pushed down staircase in Amsterdam


A shocking video of a South African woman being shoved down a flight of stairs in Amsterdam, is making the rounds on social media.

The video was posted on Facebook by Steve Nkumbi, captioned “When racism is unapologetically visible. I was assaulted, verbally abused and physically abused by a white Man! This happened to me this morning! I am in agony. Comrades, Aluta continua!”


2017.07.08: Amsterdam. One of my friends/ Inkanyiso crew members was pushed downstairs by the Airbnb owner where we stayed. He threw their belongings out … for few mins late checkout. She collapsed and ended up in hospital. She suffered internal injuries and bruises. Am so angry with this I couldn't even sleep. This is racism and can't be justified… violence on black bodies as you can see in this video. #racism #evidence #visualactivism #Amsterdam 😭😭😭😭😭😭😰… #lessthan24hours ago … a young black female pushed and hurt by a white male who screamed in a Dutch language. #genderbasedviolence … 📹 by #LeratoDumse @dumselerato of @dulovemedia

Later South African photographer Zanele Muholi posted the video on Instagram, describing it as racist incidence.

In the video, her friend is pushed down the stairs, allegedly by an Airbnb owner, at the place they were staying. The attack happened after what appears to be a disagreement between the women and owner.
