SACP to picket outside Woolworths Greenacres this Saturday
The South African Communist Party (SACP) in Port Elizabeth on Thursday announced that it will be picketing outside Woolworths' Greenacres branch in Port Elizabeth on Saturday morning as part of its Mbuyiselo Ngwenda memorial programme. Dr. Blade Nzimande, who is Minister for Higher Education and Training and the General Secretary of the SACP is expected to be there.
According to the party, the picjket is "in solidarity with the oppressed people of Palestine". The party is among voices that have been lobbying for boycotts of Woolworths products in an effort to force the retail giant not to stop stocking Israeli products on its shelves.
The late Mbuyiselo Ngwenda, who the Port Elizabeth branch of the SACP is named after, was a former SACP Central Committee (CC) and SACP Politburo Member.
The events will be held as follows:
Date: Saturday, 19 March 2016
Venue: Woolworths, Greenacres, Port Elizabeth
Date: Sunday, 20 March 2016
Venue: Daku Hall, Kwazakhele, Port Elizabeth
Speakers: Dr Blade Nzimande – SACP General Secretary
