Cosatu launches protest campaign


The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) in Mpumalanga has launched a protest campaign to deliver a memorandum to the Witbank police station.

The training took place on Friday, December 10.

Cosatu says the protest campaign took place during the 16 days of activism against gender-based violence and femicide to voice their concerns about issues of gender-based violence.

The federation says it has noted with disgust and anger the uncontrollable upsurge in brutal and barbaric violent attacks against women and children.

The federation echoes the country’s president’s statement that gender-based violence must be treated as the next pandemic that must be fought with all the force it deserves.

The federation further calls on all members of society to join the ranks against the following:

Report crimes and fully prosecute those responsible for gender-based violence, calling for an end to abuses against women and children as well as feminicides, to end rape and to demand full prosecutions against those responsible, to combat and report the sexual harassment now, to combat transactional use of employment for sex and to expose sexual parasites now.

Mrs. Georgina Mahlatsi signing after receiving the memorandum on behalf of the Ministry of Labor and Employment.
