This year’s strike season has been the bloodiest in recent memory. The anger of the striking workers was not only turned against the employers, but against fellow workers as well, who were beaten, shot, hacked to death or stabbed. The reason for this was that either the workers were seen as strike breakers: scabs or blacklegs, or were targeted because they supported another union, write Crispen Chinguno and Elijah Chiwota.
