On January 27, pickets and rallies were held in several cities of South Africa in support of the workers’ demand to nationalize the dairy company Clover
Unions and Palestinian solidarity organizations have escalated actions calling for the South African government to disinvest from Clover the Milco consortium, which is majority-owned by an Israeli company operating in occupied territories of Palestine.
Amid threats and intimidation, the workers’ action at Clover has been strengthened by worker solidarity as well as the increasing support of civil society for its boycott campaign.
Peoples Dispatch spoke to John Appolis, general secretary of the General Industries Workers Union of South Africa (Giwusa), about the ongoing indefinite strike by workers at the Israeli-owned dairy giant Clover
Since Clover’s takeover in 2019 by MILCO, which is majority-owned by an Israeli company, its production capacity is being destroyed to secure the South African dairy market for imported products from Israel, said General Industries Workers Union of South Africa president Mametlwe Sebei
