Around a thousand AMCU members gathered at SABC Park in Polokwane, Limpopo, to join more than 50 000 of their comrades across South Africa in turning the streets of the nation green as part of the national socio-economic march organised by the Union. Led by AMCU’s regional and national leadership, including the Union’s head of organisational development, Krister van Runsberg, who handed the memorandum over to representatives from the Department of Mineral Resources in Limpopo. The sound of workers chanting filled the air, while placards declared where workers stand when it comes to job losses, low wages, unsafe working conditions and other issues in the mining sector and other industries that the government needs to prioritise to show their commitment to making South Africa and just country, especially for workers, whose toil should be compensated with a living wage.
