Tshwane: WASP this Saturday calls for workers and poor to register to vote; for Zuma to resign

The Workers and Socialist Party (WASP) will this Saturday, February 1, campaign in Tshwane to get students, workers, street traders, youth and other community members to register to vote in the 2014 general elections.

WASP campaigners will also rally community support for the student strike against financial exclusions, which is currently in motion at the Tshwane University of Technology among other campuses across the country, as well as for the mineworkers’ strike for a living wage of R12 500.

Part of tomorrow’s activities will also be the circulation of a petition calling for the resignation of President Jacob Zuma following the police massacre at Marikana, further police killings in Mothutlung, Roodeport, and now Relela village in Limpopo, as well as his government’s failure to fulfil any of its promises to the poor and to workers.

WASP campaigners will assemble at Sammy Marks Square, Tshwane, at 11h00 on Saturday February 1 and fan out across the city.

Those who wish to join in can call WASP organiser Elmond Magedi on 076 317 6955.
