Victory To The South African Clover Strike! General Strike To Drive The Zionist Wertheim Billionaires Out & The ANC With Them
Workers Control Of Clover & the Wealth Of South Africa!
The strike of 5,000 South African Clover workers against the Israeli billionaire Wertheim family’s effort to destroy the GIWUSA and FAWU unions and lay off thousands of workers is a critical struggle for the entire working class of South Africa and for the world working class. They are shutting down this company to turn it into a distributor of Israeli products.
The ANC Ramaphosa government represents a comprador capitalist class that is now allowing the Zionists and other global billionaires to destroy and loot the economy with the destruction of the country’s industry.
The privatization and collapse of the economy under the ANC government is a policy of thieves who are busy at work selling all public services and resources to billionaires around the world, along with ANC crooks. The COSATU union leadership, which supports the ANC, also has some leaders who have taken personal control of their union pension funds and are looting them as well.
The call by the striking unions and SAFTU for the nationalization of Clover and for it to be run under democratic workers’ control is a policy that needs to be fought for as well at Eskom, Transnet, SAA, and many other companies and industries.
The need for a mass workers’ party that has a program for the working class to solve this crisis by taking power is more critical than ever. The entire working class must unite to bust the union-busters at Clover and link up this struggle with all the other anti-capitalist struggles going on at workplaces and communities around the world.
This battle in South Africa is not unique – similar struggles are taking place globally and the need for united international working-class action is critical. We support global united front actions at Israeli consulates, South African Consulates, Coca-Cola operations and the Wertheim-owned bank Mizrahi.
