Jonker Street and the Chinese hegemony in counterfeit selling


Jonker Street is to be shut down mainly to ease of traffic circulation within the inner city area.

Furthermore, the attraction within the area for the past 13 years was seen as a place for selling counterfeits, art and alike, and precisely it was the place to cheat foreigners and visitors.

The government’s decision to close it down is commendable.

The protestors, or precisely the financiers of the traders, were Chinese chauvinist who was forcing drivers into difficulty having to face traffic jams whilst they made million by cheating foreigners and tourists for years.
