A woman with her mouth taped up and some 1,000 people protest on November 22, 2011 outside the South African Parliament in Cape Town against the Protection of State Information Bill. South Africa's parliament on November 22 approved the controversial state secrets bill despite an outcry that it will threaten democracy and prevent exposure of corruption by investigative journalists. The bill was approved in a 229-107 vote, with the ruling African National Congress (ANC) accused of endangering democracy as it used its hefty majority in the National Assembly to muscle it through.
