• Oppose bail and issue maximum sentence for KFC assault
    Jacob and Dudu Sono, the victims, were assaulted when they asked the driver of the car in front of them to move forward in the drive-through. The five men named Stephan Nel, 39, Marius Harding, 23, DJ van Rooyen, 21, Ockert Muller, 20, and Joshua Scholtz, 21, had ordered and were supposed to fetch their food at the next window. In the video [1], the attackers could be heard swearing at Jacob and his wife. The men face charges of attempted murder, assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm and pointing a firearm [2]. One of the accused, Ockert Muller, has already been granted bail while Marius Harding, who already has previous assault convictions, has abandoned his bid for bail. Incidents of assault across racial lines have been frequently reported on in the media, and unless we send out a strong message of condemnation, they are likely to keep happening. The Coffin Assault incident, which is currently before the courts, is evidence that perpetrators of these incidents are racist and not remorseful for their actions. Deny bail and give a very harsh sentence to deal with these perpetrators.

  • 'Vat and sit' coloured culture book
    Creating this impression of coloureds which is insulting to say the least influences the perception of an entire community which takes us straight back to apartheid days where coloured people are treated as lesser human beings. The author is not apologetic and the publisher should never have published such a badly researched generalisation selling it as coloured culture and creating such a negative impression.

  • Remove racist and defamatory books
    The information, particularly about Coloured people in South Africa is defamatory and racist. The information is ill informed and dangerous in creating assumptions about millions of South Africans. The publisher Paula Marais has taken no responsibility for the chapter by saying other people wrote it and it was verified by people of "that" culture, further exposing her attitude towards accountability.

  • Change of street name: Hendrik Verwoerd Drive in Centurion
    An architect of apartheid should not be honoured as the long term effects of the Verwoerd administration are still being dealt with, and the country is still healing from the evil acts of this man. The name triggers bad memories, of suffering and loss. We cannot change history, but we can make South Africa a better place to live in.

  • #BringBackTheWorkers 300+ Black Workers Fired at UWC and Stellenbosch
    150 Stellenbosch University workers were dismissed at the end 2015 after demonstrations at that university calling for the insourcing of all workers under the #EndOutSourcing banner. 88 of the 150 dismissed workers were contracted by G4S Secure Solutions. Most of the dismissed workers had been involved in landscaping and as private security staff. Following that the university placed a moratorium on outsourcing. During the Stellenbosch shack demonstrations, in an attempt to justify its inaction in resolving the matter, the university cited that it was not within its legal parameters to intervene in the matter as it was an issue between the outsourcing company and the workers, this is despite the fact that these workers contributed to the daily running of the university and logically it would be in the best interests of the university to resolve the matter amicably, this is truly astounding logic for a university that prides itself in academic excellence yet fails to exercise even the most basic intellecual exercise of logical thinking, but to expect logic and sense from the bastion of Afrikaner Nationalism would be to burden ourselves with false hope! In addition to the dismissal of the Stellenbosch Workers, 188 UWC outsourced workers contracted to the security services company, Securitas, have been dismissed. Since students of UWC waged the fight for free decolonized education and an end to outsourcing, service providers and University Managements have sought to suppress the movement by taking protesting workers to Labour courts with allegations of absconding from work. Initially, the workers had successfully won the case. Their legal team presented the undisputed truth that workers did not abscond from work but in fact stayed away because the campus was on shutdown due to reason being that the UWC refused to engage students in an honest and genuine manner. Securitas, the service provider, soon after the Court ruling embarked on a bias and illegal internal hearing chaired by a person(s) favourable to them. In this bogus hearing, charges were mischievously replaced from the originally defeated in court claims which alleged absconding to manufactured charges now of hostage. On Friday of the 13th January 2017 over 180 workers were found guilty of this false charge and were immediately dismissed. Most of the workers dismissed are bread winners to largely poor families. They have children to feed, buy uniform and schools stationary. This dismissal means that our black parents might see their children being expelled from schools due to being unable to afford registration fees. The University of the Western Cape under the leadership of Tyrone is anti-black and they have declared a war against all the black bodies which do not subscribe to their mediocre and dictatorship leading style which advances capitalist agenda. The Fees Must Fall Western Cape movement stands firm against all forms of victimisation and extends its warning to the University of the Western and the University of Stellenbosch that failure to re-instate unfairly dismissed workers will result in aggravated protests that will hinder the full functioning of both Universities. It simply cannot be that over 300 black families are displaced outside of the economy by frivolous and maliciously applied labour laws by University bureacrats in tandem with private companies. We therefore call upon all those who stand in solidarity with the student-worker aliance to put their signature in support of the reinstatement of our parents. 'We are all connected. When one arm or foot is poisoned, the whole body becomes infected.' -Suzy Kassem #BringBackTheWorkers

  • Tell the Saldanha Bay Municipality to stop violating human rights
    This is a violation of human rights and reminiscent of the apartheid government's issuing of dompasses. The Saldanha Bay Municipality should be working to make public spaces more accessible to poor and low-income families, not reinforcing spacial divisions along racial and class lines.

  • REMOVE THE RACIST CHIEF MASTER OF THE HIGH COURTS OF SOUTH AFRICA
    This is important because the Chief Master of the High Court is supposed to push the transformation agenda at the Department of Justice so that Black Liquidators can be included to be appointed in all insolvency matters in this country. One cannot expect a person who is a racist or who has racist tendencies to be in charge of such an important position.
