COSATU Free State has noted with serious concern the developments around the advancing settlements in Palestinian territory and the humanitarian crisis in Gaza. This ,by now, should have been declared a planned genocide by the international community.
We have also noted the deepening crisis in Venezuela where the Western imperialist forces have taken a stance to undermine the democracy of that sovereign country.
As COSATU Free State, we would be taking a stand against these abuses of power by the powerful and engaging in picketing and demonstration against the imperialist forces.
The picketing will take place on 04 April 2019 at the corner of Nelson Mandela and Markgraaf Streets in Bloemfontein during lunch time. The action is undertaken as a way to demonstrate our support for the people of both Palestine and Venezuela ;so that they can be allowed to exercise their human rights for self-determination.
