Bongani Masuku (International Secretary) and George Mahlangu (Campaigns Coordinator) from the South African national trade union centre, COSATU, are due to speak in Manchester on 7 December at an event titled “The case for sanctions and boycott”. The event will be chaired by Tom Hickey, a member of the National Executive Committee of the Universities and Colleges Union (UCU). Full details are on the Engage website. (It is well worth reading the comments there for details about Masuku’s notorious anti-Jewish rants.)
Update [27.11.09]: COSATU has issued a strong statement condemning the Zionist Federation in South Africa and giving further details of its involvement in the BDS campaign in the UK.
