Protests & Strikes

So last week Swaziland had a major strike and protest. The Trade unions, nurses, school teachers and bus drivers all went on strike for the day pretty much shut down most of the country. And their was a general protest on the same day.

And unlike the rest of Africa and the Middle East everything was peaceful.

Which just proves that Swaziland is truly a peaceful country, even though it is an absolute Monarchy.

The PC was on top of every thing, including the correct news (not the rumors) and regarding are safety especially if things don't remain peaceful.

It is interesting to be in country where no one votes.
