Some serious rubbish
South African Municipal Workers (SAMWU) members spread rubbish on the streets of Edenvale, Johannesburg. They are protesting about working conditions and pay. Wow, these guys sure made a mess, tipping over refuse bins, emptying them all over the street and lobbing black bags all over the place.
Even though I'm really not a fan of this (especially because I live in Edenvale), I do understand why they do it. The only time the municipalities will listen to anyone is when some form of action similar to this is done.
It's the same with the government, people can talk, people can shout, people can even beg, but it seems they only listen when it becomes a problem for them...
