Activists across the country have been protesting against Shell's planned seismic survey on the Wild Coast in the Eastern Cape.

Hundreds of protesters have gathered in various parts of South Africa, including Cape Town, East London, and Johannesburg, to express their disapproval.

The Makhanda High Court on Friday dismissed a court bid brought by environmentalists to have the seismic tests halted.

Protesters say they are taking a stand against Shell in a bid to save the Wild Coast and protect the environment.

According to reports, demonstrators have shut down a Shell filling station in Bryanston north of Johannesburg after marching on Shell's offices.

Demonstrations have been taking place on various beaches in the Eastern Cape and in the Western Cape on Sunday morning.

In Cape Town, they've gathered at Muizenberg Beach, Hout Bay, the V&A Waterfront, Bloubergstrand, Langebaan, and other coastal areas.
