Trade unionists in South Africa are holding a one-day strike in protest against the high cost of living.
Ooookkkkkaaaaayyyy….no problem if you want to strike. Our constitution gives you the right to do so, so go ahead and make your point. Peacefully. Willingly.
Typically though, it’s hardly ever peaceful or willingly. Just this morning taxi’s had stones thrown at them, should they dare to transport passengers. People trying to leave the location via bicycle was also attacked and stopped. Threats warnings were giving that houses will be burnt down if workers went to work.
So much for a peaceful strike. I personally think most of them don’t even know what the strike is about. I don’t think those who receive the memorandum even reads it or give any attention to it.
Don’t argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.
