  • Description

    QUE-UES OF UNEMPLOYMENT AFRICANS SEEKING IN SALISBURY, THE RHODESIA CAPITAL, ARE GETTING LONGER AS THE INTERNATIONAL SANCTIONS AGAINST THE ILLEGAL REGIME CONTINUE.

    AFRICANS HAVE BEEN THE HARDEST HIT SO FAR BY UNEMPLOYMENT CAUSED BY THE SANCTIONS. THE GOVERNMENT HAS SAID THAT MARRIED WOMEN AND PEOPLE WITHOUT DEPENDENTS MUST BE THE FIRST TO LOSE THEIR JOBS IF THE SITUATION WORSENS. TRADE FIGURES ARE NO LONGER PUBLISHED, BUT IMPORTS ARE BELIEVED TO HAVE DROPPED CONSIDERABLY, AND PEOPLE EMPLOYED IN COMMERCE ARE THE FIRST TO SUFFER.

    ON ONE MORNING, THERE WAS A CROWD OF SEVERAL HUNDRED OUTSIDE THE SALISBURY LABOUR EXCHANGE EVEN BEFORE IT HAD OPENED. WITH THE OFFICES INSIDE FILLED TO CAPACITY, THE CROWD SPILLED INTO THE SQUARE OUTSIDE. WITH STRINGENT PRESS CONTROL IMPOSED SINCE RHODESIA SEIZED INDEPENDENCE, THE VISNEWS CAMERAMAN WAS NOT ALLOWED INTO THE BUILDING.
