Members of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) on Thursday arrived at Moscow in Tigane, near Klerksdorp, ahead of a march to the Gupta owned Shiva Uranium Mine.
Dressed in red T-Shirts, the EFF chanted and wield knobkerries as they assembled.
They were expected to support members of the SA Federation of Trade Unions (Saftu), who want to hand over a memorandum of grievances at Shiva Uranium Mine in Haartebesfontien.
One man set a tyre alight on the road, but some other protesters doused the fire.
The Public Order Police (POP) Unit and the Matlosana local municipality’s traffic officers were monitoring the situation ahead of the march.
