What will you do when the eToll kicks in?

20 September 2012, 20:03
So we pay massive amounts of Tax on fuel which is supposed to pay for roads that we are about to become tollroads.

I am just wondering how many N24 readers (and others if you would be so kind as to share this article) would actually be willing to do something about it.

Would you join a strike if one was staged? Would you march, block off highways, refuse to pay?
I think South Africans (especially whites) will just moan about it like we do everything else and just do nothing.
What would you do?

Even if it is just one word like "Nothing" or "March" please let us know. i think it would be very interesting to see!
My answer:I would join whatever mass action occurs, if Cosatu (or any other organization) organised a march, you can expect to see my lily white ass there!

If they drop the fuel tax, I'll gladly pay the eToll, if not, it is just more corrupt thievery! I will not pay both.
