John Robbie's Comment

A lesson from Iceland on effective protest


While Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan was delivering a speech that favoured #FeesMustFall, protestors were destroying property outside of Parliament. John makes a note of a powerful Icelandic protest by women who ended work 14% earlier in a protest against being paid 14% less than their male counterparts. Could SA learn something from this example in how we protest?
