Public Works Minister Thulas Nxesi has promised protestors at the Union Buildings that government will soon respond to their memorandum demanding economic relief.
The ANC Youth League’s top demand is that the Constitution should be amended so that land can be expropriated without compensation.
They also want to see the nationalisation of mines and of banks.
The thousands of weary marchers are now making their way home after a two-day protest which saw many of them walking overnight from Johannesburg to Pretoria.
