COSATU calls off the Rugby protest action at Newlands Tomorrow
COSATU has scored a great victory for South Africans, who in future will now be able to see national teams live on SABC, the national public broadcaster. Government and SARU have agreed with COSATU on making sport accessible to all South Africans. The only party that has so far failed to agree to the majority of poor people getting to see rugby live was Supersport.
This means tomorrow's game will not be shown live on SABC. Supersport in the meeting decided to put profit and greed before the interest and well being of ordinary South Africans
COSATU will continue to be at the forefront of taking the National Sport away from Supersport. The protest planned for tomorrow at Newlands is therefore suspended and will not take place. The federation and its entire membership hereby wishes our National Rugby team, the Springboks well in their game tomorrow against New Zeeland.
