Trashing the Town
When I was in Johannesburg and strikers 'trashed the town', it was something that happened over 10km away - maybe even 20km. Here, in Grahamstown, the place is so small that there is not a lot of town to trash in. Watching grey-haired (white) ladies trying to navigate their cars through the garbage on the roads made me wonder whether the strikers are hitting at the right people.
