On 8th September the RKOB (Austrian section of the Revolutionary Communist International Tendency) organized together with several other groups a rally in solidarity with the miners in South Africa. This rally took place in accordance with a national day of action in South Africa itself. About 35 activists assembled at a central market in the biggest working class district in Vienna and informed workers – amongst them many migrants – about the struggle of the South African miners.
A number of speakers from the RKOB and the youth organization RED*REVOLUTION stressed the need for international solidarity and drew the lessons of this important struggle also for the Austrian working class. Speakers from other groups with whom the RKOB co-organized the rally – like the GKK (Austrian section of CoReP), Maoist organizations like the RKJV, RA/AL and KOMAK-ML – also addressed the rally.
