Johannesburg - Legal Aid South Africa lawyers took to the streets again on Monday leaving many people depending on them without legal representation, the second time they have done so this year.
In May, the lawyers - some clad in academic gowns - protested outside their Braamfontein, Johannesburg offices, complaining about alleged unfair treatment at work.
They also claimed they had been victimised for raising concerns regarding salaries and working conditions.
Legal Aid South Africa spokesperson Mfanafuthi Shabangu said it was not clear just how long this latest strike would last.
However, they would engage with the employees and try to get a resolution by Wednesday, he said.
