protestBusiness Report writes that next round of protests by the taxi industry will target vehicle manufacturer Beijing Automotive Works (BAW), Sasol in Secunda and the Fourways Mall.  Further companies may be added to the list of targets.  

The protests are mainly related to the industry’s exclusion from the industry’s value chain.  The planned protest against Fourways Mall is related to the lack of facilities at the mall for taxis that transport customers and retail store staff to and from the mall.  Apparently, the Mass Taxi Industry Protest Action Committee is in the process of applying for permission to embark on the protests on 13 September.  The committee, a splinter group of the SA National Taxi Council (Santaco), organised the blockade at Toyota SA’s manufacturing plant in Prospecton in Durban in May and the protests that took place in June in Johannesburg and Midrand.
