London demonstration against Swaziland royal dictator

This video from South Africa says about itself:

About 100 South African trade unionists picketed the Swaziland consulate in Johannesburg on November 18, 2010 in support of the Swaziland Democracy Campaign and in support of a march held the previous day within the country.

Speakers here are Sikhumbuzo Phakathi, deputy president of the Peoples United Democratic Movement (PUDEMO) and Bongani Musaku, international officer, Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU).

While his people are poverty stricken and denied democratic rights King Mswati of Swaziland rocks up to the Dorchester Hotel with a retinue of 50 people for his royal wedding invite. Let him hear some unfamiliar sounds of opposition for once:

King Mswati iii, the despotic ruler of Swaziland arrives with his entourage of 50 to stay at The Dorchester Hotel tomorrow – Come and vent your disgust at his disgusting opulence and that of our royals who think it’s fine to invite him!
