Workers In South Africa March In Favor Of Palestinians On May Day

On Wednesday, May 1st, in Cape Town, sizable throngs of ANC supporters participated in a solidarity Workers march in favor of Palestine.

Later, the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) organized a May Day rally at the Athlone Stadium, where they assembled.

President Cyril Ramaphosa reaffirmed the long-standing support that his nation has shown for the Palestinian people.

“As laborers, you must take up this struggle to defend the rights of oppressed people everywhere. Additionally, as South Africa, we have defended the rights of people who are currently facing torture, violence, and genocide in other areas of the world,” the president of state declared.

The African National Congress, led by Ramaphosa, is allied with COSATU and the South African Communist Party in a tripartite manner.

The biggest labor union federation in the nation is called Cosatu.

“We are here to support the Palestinian cause and our movement and government. Zingiswa Losi, the Congress of South African Trade Unions president, addressed the applauding throng, saying, “Our freedom, comrades, is not complete until the people of Palestine are free and they are liberated.”

For years, the ANC and many South Africans have drawn comparisons between the treatment of non-white South Africans during Apartheid and Israel’s policy against Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank.
