popcruThe Citizen reports that the Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (Popcru) on Monday launched the start of two-week long countrywide lunchtime pickets at selected criminal justice cluster buildings.  

This action will culminate in a mass protest march to the Union Buildings.  The union’s demands include restructuring of the police service; one police service and one police Act; an end to police killings; finalisation of grading of public servants’ appointments; a promotions policy; and finalisation of shift patterns.  The union claims that exhaustive talks with the criminal justice cluster have borne no fruit, forcing its members in correctional, traffic and police institutions to march for their rights.  “It is due to this that scores of Popcru members and supporters will be attending a national march on Friday, July 13 towards the Union Buildings, where memorandums of demands are expected to be given to the different governmental heads,” spokesman Richard Mamabolo indicated.
