The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) says it fully supports the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Union’s (ZCTU) National Protest scheduled for today at 12.30. The protest, which precedes the National Budget announcement on November 20, is against the deteriorating economic and political situation in Zimbabwe and government's approach to solving the crisis, in particular the high levels of taxation, ever-rising prices and cost of living, and the violation of human and trade union rights.

The union says it is alarmed to hear that the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) have threatened to quash the protest, saying that there is no valid reason for the police not to let the protest go ahead.

The ZCTU last demonstrated on October 8, where police arrested 165 trade unionists.
