14 Nov “Workers on Wednesday” - The Socialist Revolutionary Workers’ Party – Is this the genuine working class alternative?

Since the huge voter turnout in the 1994 national elections we’ve seen a steady decline, with millions of South Africans becoming disillusioned and not participating in elections every five years. However, a new far-left party has successfully registered recently and will participate in the 2019 elections. It is the NUMSA initiated Socialist Revolutionary Workers Party (SRWP) that came about when the union adopted a few ground-breaking political resolutions at its special congress in December 2013. It’s been nearly five years since the “NUMSA Moment” and in today’s show we assess what the SRWP is all about and its prospects in next year’s elections.
