Quote of the week

As seductive as certain perspectives of international law may appear to those who disagree with the outcome of the interpretative exercise conducted by this Court in the contempt judgment, sight must not be lost of the proper place of international law, especially in respect of an application for rescission. The approach that my Brother adopts may be apposite in the context of an appeal, where a court is enjoined to consider whether the court a quo erred in its interpretation of the law. Although it should be clear by now, I shall repeat it once more: this is not an appeal, for this Court’s orders are not appealable. I am deeply concerned that seeking to rely on articles of the ICCPR as a basis for rescission constitutes nothing more than sophistry.

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!
