Residents of Diepsloot pass the public holiday following Youth Day as they go about their daily activities on June 17, 2013 in Johannesburg, South Africa. A densely populated settlement made up of government-subsidised housing, brick houses and shacks, Diepsloot is home to many immigrants from Zimbabwe. Youth Day commemorates the Soweto Uprising of June 16, 1976, when students gathered on the streets of Soweto to protest against Afrikaans being the language of instruction used in schools. The protest turned violent resulting in the deaths of students and hundreds in the riots that followed across South Africa.
