The Communist Party of Swaziland (CPS) stands in solidarity with mineworkers currently on strike in Zimbabwe for improved working conditions and against the extreme exploitation they are experiencing from the bosses at Anjin Investments.
The CPS salutes the workers as led by the Zimbabwe Diamond and Allied Minerals Workers’ Union for waging this gallant fight for their right to dignity and life.
It is a well-documented fact that the lives of the workers and poor in Zimbabwe have grossly plummeted over the years as their country experienced one crisis after another, all rooted in the capitalist system. Different sections of the capitalist class in Zimbabwe have derived private profits at the expense of workers for many years. On the other hand, imperialism has worsened the situation of the workers.
The CPS calls for united solidarity with all workers in Zimbabwe in their struggles for better working conditions and a living wage. The CPS will continue to support the efforts of the workers in Zimbabwe to forge a united front against capitalist exploitation, while at the same time making its contribution to building unity among progressive forces in the African continent and the world.
