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).
