Quote of the week

Senekal last week had nothing to do with solutions. It was all about politicians’ testosterone. It was all about politicians’ egos. What useful idea came out of all that heat and noise generated by all those politicians in Senekal last week? There is nothing. Nothing that makes SA a better place. Nothing that leads us to a better understanding of race relations in SA after 1994. Nothing that is a solution to farm murders – many of whose victims are poorly paid, desperate black people – or a solution to the incredibly horrendous murder and crime problem in this country.

Stop Secrecy Bill – march to Parlaiment on 17 September

DEMAND THE RIGHT TO KNOW!
STOP THE SECRECY BILL!
Right2Know March to Parliament, 10.30am – 1pm, Saturday 17 September

It’s been almost one year since R2K mounted its first march on Parliament in protest at the draconian Secrecy Bill! Through the efforts of our membership of civil society organisations, social movements and community groups, we have ensured that many of the draconian clauses have been removed or revised. But despite efforts to reform the Secrecy Bill in Parliament, the final draft that will appear before the National Assembly still metes out harsh prison sentences to whistleblowers, and poses a clear threat to the free flow of information.

On Saturday 17 September from 10.30am to 1pm, thousands of South Africans will join in a march to Parliament to reject the final draft of the ‘Secrecy Bill’.

Start time: 10.30AM (right after the rugby)
Where: Cnr of Tennant St and Kaizersgracht (outside CPUT campus)

COME DRESSED IN RED, BLACK and WHITE!
