Victory To South African Clover Workers & Smash Israeli Union Busting! For Workers Control At Clover
As part of an international day of action on January 27th for the 5,000 striking Clover workers in South Africa a rally was held at the Israeli consulate in San Francisco.
Clover which is owned by Israeli billionaires David and Dorit Wertheim owns the Clover through a take-over by their companies Milco and the ‘Israeli Central Bottling Company. As soon as they took over, they imposed a 20% pay cut and began massive asset stripping and shutting down production.
Speakers talked about the role of the ANC Ramaphosa government which approved the take-over by these billionaires despite information that they have used their bank to finance illegal settlements on Palestinian land. They also have dairies in Palestinian lands and supply Coca-Cola products to these settlements. Their company CBC has the franchise for Coca-Cola in Israel and now want to ship Israeli product to replace Clover products.
Also a report was made on the role of the Israeli government and trade union Histadrut in supporting the South Africa regime and also engaging in terrorism and assassinations of trade unionists and leftists in Central and Latin America. The rally was initiated by the United Front Committee For A Labor Party
