Vast public sector strike in kinshasa

MISNA - September 16, 2005 4:51 PM

Functionaries and employees of the public sector have begun an "unlimited" strike in Kinshasa, capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Thousands of public administration workers demonstrated peacefully on the streets of the city, demanding the implementation of an accord for pay raises undersigned by the government in February 2004 and so far ignored. The protest, that according to the local press involves some 500,000 employees on a total of over 50-million inhabitants, adds to that of the teachers of the public primary and high schools and technical institutes, abstaining from work since September 5, first day of the school year. Protests are also reported in the aviation sector, with workers of the Régie des voies aérienne' - in charge of security in the skies of DR-Congo, theatre to recent plane accidents - that contest some government decisions.
