Workers Take To Streets Of Cape Town In State Capture Protest


A few hundred striking workers took to the streets of Cape Town on Wednesday morning to protest over state capture. 

The march organised by the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu), along with the SA Communist Party, saw workers, most of them dressed in red, first making their way to the Passenger Rail Agency of SA (Prasa) to hand over a memorandum airing their displeasure with the ineffective train service in Cape Town. 

Among those marching was former deputy secretary general of the SACP Jeremy Cronin. 

The workers, some holding up posters reading “Zuma must go” were then set to make their way to the provincial legislature and Parliament.
