Mary Manning talks about where they're at as the strike enters its second year.

Mary Manning talks to ‘Morning Ireland’ presenter David Hanly as the strike enters its second year. She is just back from an International Youth Festival in the Soviet Union, where she was spreading the word about the strike. As they are not getting a lot of support from the Irish government, they are hoping to put pressure on them from outside the country. The minister for labour, Ruairí Quinn, promised to organise a meeting of supermarket owners to get them to agree on minimising the sale of South African goods, but it hasn’t happened.  

Meanwhile, some branches of Dunnes Stores have a policy of not handling South African goods while others do.
