Black First Land First (BLF) will start the ABSA pay back the money protest action tommorrow, 28 June in Gauteng. Pickets will be held in over 20 ABSA branches in and around the province of Gaugteng.
The peaceful pickets aim to raise awareness about the corruption and arrogance of ABSA bank. The protests follow the findings of the Public Protector who ruled that ABSA must pay back over R1 billion which was stolen from the South African Reserve Bank (SARB).
BLF has written a letter to ABSA demanding that they pay back the money without delay. ABSA has refused to comply with the Public Protector leaving BLF with no option but to start protest action which will escalate into a national shutdown of ABSA branches.
