​Activists Protest at SABC Headquarters

A group of activists under the banner Right2Know are staging a sit-in at the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) head office in Johannesburg.

The group took a decision to protest after the public broadcaster refused to allow four journalists to enter the offices.

The Right2Know Campaign says the journalists went to report for duty after the Labour Court ruled that their initial dismissal was unlawful.

Mines Can Afford Workers’ Salary Demands

A new report by the research group, Research on Money and Finance, says platinum mines can afford to pay workers more.

The report, entitled ‘Demanding the Impossible? Platinum Mining Profits and Wage Demands in Context’, states that huge profits in the past decade were given to investors while workers benefited little.

The report further notes that if this had not occurred, workers could be earning the wage they are currently striking for.
