#SaftuStrike in Joburg CBD peaceful, only a few dirt bins knocked over - JMPD
Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD) Spokesperson, Edna Mamonyane says the protesters have now moved to the offices of the Premier David Makhura in the Joburg CBD.
She says the march has been peaceful except for some people who became unruly and knocked over a few dirt bins on the street.
They haven't stopped singing since they started this morning. Even their leadership is struggling to address them.Edna Mamonyane, JMPD spokesperson
Mamonyane says she believes the strike is well organised and has a visible presence.
JMPD was told there would be about 7500 protesters but it made provisions for a larger number.
I think they did get the number they were looking for or even more. At the moment Simon's Street is just red.Edna Mamonyane, JMPD spokesperson
The government has already imposed VAT, Sugar Tax, Fuel Levy and all other manners of taxes to resolve an economic crisis that the workers did not create, the very same government proposes that the NMW for all workers should be R20 per hour. #eff #malema Afriforum #saftustrike— EFF Intelligence Services (@NenGweX) April 25, 2018
Workers fight their own battles through marches, strikes and pickets while @ZwelinzimaVavi @IrvinJimSA Sdumo and fellow gang members benefit. Why pay union fees if i still have to go strike and lose a day's payment? @_cosatu @SAFTU_media #SAFTUstrike— #Azanian Citizen (@Chiefziya) April 25, 2018
