Strike action...

This URCSA Executive has produced a position on the public service strike and it is found on our webpage. The initial just demands of workers however later became part and parcel of Cosatu's show of strength in the run-up to the elections of a new president. This seems to become a war now between unions ( and their private hooligan army) and government. It then strike me that in youth month, the unions are using the future of our children as cannon fodder, in their battle for political positions. This is bad taste in the extreme. Yesterday, I sensed in the only Afrikaans sunday newspaper, Rapport a low key support for the strike. Could it be that Rapport is now turning socialist on us ( in support of the power play of Cosatu ?)- No, its just their ussual anti-government, anti-black propaganda again pouncing on the opportunity to get a 'below-the belt upper cut' in -here from the side of the ring. Everybody is in on what ever there is outthere for the taking. In the meantime, their (Union bosses, government ministers, rapport's bigshot's) children goes to school, whilst the rest of our children are left unattended, they go to the private hospitals on medical aid and the rest ( like 87 year old auntie Minnie) is graspking for breath, because she was harrased away from two hospitals by maurauding 'health workers'. I almost said it smacks like Charles Taylor, using children in his terror on post-colonial West-africa. can someone show me the difference ??
