  • Description

    About 70 percent of Johannesburg's black workforce has responded to calls for a 3-day strike to protest against the South African government's apartheid policies. Thousands of coloured (mixed race) workers in Cape Town have also joined in the protest, which is affecting Cape Town's docks and building industry as well as bread and milk deliveries.

    SYNOPSIS: Normally about 350,000 blacks travel into Johannesburg from Soweto and Alexandra townships each day, but this has been cut by about two thirds since Monday (13 September). A Visnews reporter spoke to a black strike militant about the protest.
