Thousands march as South Africans strike

A South African trade union federation has called a nationwide strike to demonstrate for improved worker rights and against plans to introduce unpopular road tolls.

Although the marches were expected to be peaceful, travellers should be aware that some services may be disrupted. Public demonstrations should be avoided in case they become violent without notice.
