MEDIA RELEASE

SUBJECT : Gauteng tollgates: FF Plus planning own protest action and says no thank you to Cosatu

ISSUED BY : Adv. Anton Alberts

CAPACITY : FF Plus parliamentary spokesperson: Transport

DATE

: 7 March 2012

The Freedom Front Plus held a meeting with other role players and decided to launch an own unique protest action against the activation of the Gauteng e-tolling system and to convince the government to scrap the whole system.

“The

protest action will entail a protest on the highways of Gauteng itself. The details of the action will be announced formally in the next couple of days,” Adv. Anton Alberts, the FF Plus’ parliamentary spokesperson on Transport says.

“The FF Plus in principle supports the march of COSATU against the toll system which is taking place today but the party cannot identify itself with the other objective of COSATU’S march, i.e., the scrapping of labour brokers. It has always been the view of the FF Plus that labour brokers in essence is not wrong and that a combination of good regulation and proper enforcement holds the answer. COSATU’s mixing of the two issues into one campaign is reckless and alienated potential allies opposed to the toll system. That is why the FF Plus is encouraging its supporters not to participate in the COSATU march but to support the FF Plus’ future campaign,” Alberts added.

  1. Just Vavi Said and I agree with him. We as south Africans pay tax so that our roads can be fixed. It means we pay for the roads to fixed and also have to pay again to use the roads which in my opinion is wrong.
