March to Support Informal Trading
CHATA will be joining the Western Cape Informal Traders Coalition in a march on Tuesday, February 23, 2009. The March will begin from Kaizerchrat in Cape Town at 9am to proceed to the City Building. CHATA has encouraged its members not to collect their permits due to the conditions that will put the Traders out of business. Mitchells Plain Traders are outraged by the Media Release from the Mayor Dan Plato yesterday February 17, 2010. Many issues regarding trading in Mitchells Plain are unresolved. As far as CHATA is concerned, the tribunal has not reached or responded to the main objections of CHATA.
All are welcome to support the Traders in the march.
