The Western Cape Liquor Traders Organisation (WCLTO) Say that new regulations on when and how they can sell alcohol will drive them into the ground, and they will have to close their businesses.
The organisation says they were not consulted before the regulations were passed.
The regulations were approved by the provincial legislature in May and will take effect from 1 July.
WCLTO's Lefa Mapilo says this will especially affect small businesses.
They have been imposing on us. They can't make decisions about us without involving us, we are role payers in the industry, they are treating our liquor as if it is illegal.— Lefa Mapilo, WC Liquor Trading Organisation provincial secretary
When they call these public participation's they don't call us as liquor traders.— Lefa Mapilo, WC Liquor Trading Organisation provincial secretary
The provincial government says it held numerous consultations across the province.
