Cosatu call on consumers to boycott chinese imports

By Chanel September

As part of the proudly South African campaign Cosatu is calling on communities to boycott certain Chinese products being sold at major retail stores.

Provincial secretary for Cosatu, Tony Ehreneich says that if South Africans buy more local products this will contribute to the development of more jobs and address poverty and social problems.

The products are often dangerous as they have not been endorsed by the South African Bureau of Standards.

Ehreneich also added that the goods imported from Chinese factories are often a rand or two cheaper but at the end of the day it’s the working class communities that suffer.
