COM­MENT Vul­ner­a­ble pay the price

Diamond Fields Advertiser - - OPINION -

EVERY­THING in life is rel­a­tive. Take Cosatu’s mem­ber­ship of 1.2 mil­lion work­ers. It is a size­able but small com­pared with the six mil­lion un­em­ployed peo­ple.

It is smaller still when com­pared with the 16 mil­lion peo­ple who have jobs or if com­pared with South Africa’s to­tal adult pop­u­la­tion.

Yes­ter­day, Cosatu and the SACP tried to bring some of our cities to a stand­still to demon­strate their call for Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma to go.

They did what worked for them over the decades: they held a march.
