South Africa: Shack Dwellers Strike at National Print, Pinetown
southern africa | workplace struggles | non-anarchist press Monday January 25, 2010 17:39 by Abahlali baseMjondolo - AbM
Press Statement 25 January 2009
150 contract workers at National Print, in Westmead, Pinetown, have walked off the job. The night shift workers will also refuse to work tonight.
About 70% of the contact workers at National Print are shack dwellers, most from the Abahlali baseMjondolo strongholds of Motala Heights,New Maus and Mpola. We have successfully resisted eviction from our settlements and we will also resist eviction from our workplaces.
The economy is in crisis due to the extreme greed of the rich. We have worked hard and done our work well. We are not to blame for the crisis. It is common sense that no one should take more than they need for themselves and their family. It is also common sense that no one should be able to take less than they need for themselves and their family. Everyone in this world has a right to a decent income.
