Eswatini: PSI condemns the police violence against public sector trade unions

Filed under: News |

We are aware that the police fired tear gas and rubber bullets at workers, causing workers to disperse. PSI strongly condemns the prohibition and the resulting suppression of rights of trade unions to mobilise and organise. This is utterly outrageous and industrial action by public service workers who are health professionals, administrators, teachers, local government workers, should never be misconstrued as a threat. This is a slap in the face to workers for who the country relies on daily to keep state institutions functioning.

In fact, the only threat to security is a system that denies the citizens their political and economic rights through the use of force and corruption.

PSI will continue to monitor the situation on the ground today and we send solidarity to our unions and their members who face police suppression and violence.
