SACP Gauteng Province to picket at National Treasury in Tshwane
19 April 2017
The South African Communist Party Gauteng Province will hold a picket at National Treasury as part of its Financial Sector Campaign (FSC) and the fight against corporate capture of the state, corruption and parasitic looting of the state.
The picket will also defend our country against being reduced to a neo-colonial playground of capitalist interests such us the Guptas, Ruperts, Allan Grey and Oppenheimers.
The picket will also highlight the following:
- The need to defend of our national sovereignty and sound financial institutions against corporate capture by parasitic and corrupt networks.
- The need to create an effective, efficient and sound Post Bank to take over the payment of Social Grants in line with the Constitutional Court decision. Included in that will be defending the Post Bank as a public institution without the encroaching interests of so-called private equity partners, merely intended to loot social grants.
- For allegedly corrupt transactions as identified by the Public Protector's report to be thoroughly investigated.
- The need to defend State Owned Enterprises (SEO's) against rampant looting, corruption and naked self-interests.
The picket will be held as follows:
Date: Friday, 21 April 2017
