A campaign to protest petrol price hikes in South Africa aims to reduce the amount of money government generates through the fuel levy.
SA Fuel war is urging all South Africans who go to work in private cars to work from home for 10 days, beginning on 5 November.
It is also appealing to employers to allow their staff to work from home during that period.
We have had some ideas, from blocking highways to not buying petrol for a day, but none of those have worked. We looked at a strategy that would allow us to target the revenue stream that goes to government in terms of the fuel levy.— Craig Berman, SA Fuel War organiser
Unless the government takes steps to drop the petrol price before the end of January, Berman says, they will launch a 'war of attrition' by strangling the supply of fuel revenue.
