South Africa continues attack on workers

By Leon J Williams

Today saw another attack on workers in South Africa by the police. Last time it was the miners when South African police shot dead more than 30 workers, now the attack is on fruit picking farm workers.

This time last year the SA police killed two workers at the same farm and today they opened fire again, this time with rubber bullets and tear gas.

Currently the farm workers get paid a mere £4.50 a day! They were on strike demanding £9 a day when the attack happened.
