AROUND 120 people demonstrated outside the South African embassy in London last week in solidarity with 87 people who went on trial in Johannesburg. The accused included Trevor Ngwane who was interviewed in Socialist Worker last week.
The London protest was called by Globalise Resistance and was supported by War on Want and the World Development Movement. Speakers at the protest included RMT union official Glenroy Watson.
In Johannesburg hundreds protested and the cases were adjourned until 23 October, a sign that the state is nervous about moving on the issue. Protests were also held in France, Canada and the United States.
