So there are calls coming for mass protest action against (effectively) Jacob Zuma's Presidency this coming Friday. Scanning the news, I gather the hope is to attract a big turnout from "the middle class" ...

That this might be a bigger deal than usual for "civil society protest action" hit home when we got notice that one of the project sites we're working on is going to be shut down on Friday. "Don't bother turning up - no-one will be here to open up" was the message. It's the headquarters of a religious organisation and it seems the entire organisation will be out supporting the protest.

So do you have any plans?

In particular - What do you (or your company) plan to do about staff attendances/absenteeism for the Friday 7th protest action?
