Voices of the Streets – Episode 7: Struggle in the City of Cape Town (Part 2)
Voices of the Streets is a podcast series published by the Alternative Information and Development Center (AIDC). It highlights peoples’ voices and opinions during political events happening primarily in Cape Town.
We believe that social justice and effective democracy requires the working class and marginalized groups to be listened to. Therefore we are out on the streets recording protestors and offering a mouthpiece for those voices that remain too often unheard.
This episode is the second part of the series focusing on the march organized by SAMWU on February 1st 2020. The march was organised in protest against the job creation and employment practices of the City of Cape Town.
This time we hear from the people on the ground about how the specific job creation programs run by the government affect them. They tell us why they are problematic and what needs to be done about them.
Several protesters at the march.
The march was organised by the South African Municipal Workers’ Union (SAMWU).
