Johannesburg - Expelled Cosatu general secretary Zwelinzim Vavi has called on everyone to join a march against xenophobia to be held in Johannesburg next week.

Speaking to delegates at the National Union of Metalworkers of SA's conference for Socialism in Johannesburg, Vavi called on all trade union movements, even Cosatu, political parties and citizens to join the march.

"As long as... [everyone] is also committed to the cause of ending this embarrassing situation unfolding in front of our eyes," he said.

"This is a march about the real crisis in society."

Vavi said these issues were the rate of unemployment, inequality, poverty and corruption.

The march was expected to be held on April 22.
