South Africa farm strike

Striking farm workers and other protestors throw stones, while hiding behind broken road signs during violent clashes with members of the South African Police Services (not visible), on January 10, 2013 in de Doorns, a small farming town about 140 km North of Cape Town, South Africa. The farm workers have said that they they will not return to work on the fruit growing region's farms until they receive a daily wage of at least R150 ($17) per day, which is about double what they currently earn.
