Christians, Zulus join South Africa march for Israel
On Thursday, a march is scheduled to set out from the Union Buildings in Pretoria, the executive seat of government in South Africa, to the Department of Trade and Industry about 1.5 kilometers away.
The plan, marchers say, is to rally against a decision by Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies that items manufactured in the West Bank cannot carry the label "Made in Israel."
But although he's reputedly a workaholic, Davies won't be at his office and it's uncertain how much attention, if any, the march will get. That's because the only game in town, or in the country for that matter, is the ruling African National Congress's Policy Conference in Midrand, a suburb of Johannesburg.
