Pick n Pay protests

Sooo . . . something a little different . . .
The Pick n Pay workers were striking.

" Pick n Pay and the union said they would meet at the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration today over picketing rules. Mr Mbongwe said customers could expect picketing near every store.
Among other things, Saccawu is demanding a R550-a-month, or 12%, wage increase - “whichever was greater per worker” — and a 10% staff discount on basic foodstuffs "

well, that didn't surprise me much . . . what I found odd was that they were protesting at train stations around Cape Town. And, funny enough, all the way from Cape Town to Fish Hoek, and then split up and went home :)

The billboard behind them says something very interesting. Freedom of expression.
was nice to see people staring at the protesters all over Cape Town . . . some were standing around, taking pictures (like I was) and asking questions.

peace and love
