Label This!

Last Thursday, Christian and Jewish South Africans marched together in a show of solidarity against the SA Department of Trade and Industry’s proposal to start re-labelling Israeli goods as “made in the Occupied Territories”. Close on 1 700 enthusiastic marchers participated in this “Africans for Israel” march, telling the DTI where they could effectively stick their labels!

The crowds gather

Initiated by the African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP) in association with the Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP), the Shembe Church, Impact for Christ Ministries and the South African Zionist Federation, the march brought together Jews, Christians from the Shembe tribe, members of the IFP, led by  Zulu Prince, Mangosuthu Buthelezi and Israel’s often lone supporter in parliament, the ACDP’s Reverend Kenneth Meshoe. And in addition to theSouth Africans, a contingent of Congolese, Zimbabweans and Nigerians also participated.
