To: Deputy Minister Chohan and Acting Minister Nzimande of Home Affairs

Last day to stop Home Affairs xenophobic attack on our African children

Hi, the deadline for public comment has closed. We will keep you updated on what happens next.

Immediately scrap the draft regulations for the Births and Deaths Registration Act.

Why is this important?

In the same week Health Minister Motsoaledi blamed our fellow Africans for the state of our health system, Home Affairs have quietly proposed new regulations to the Births and Deaths Registration Act to stop certain children born in Mzansi from receiving a birth certificate. Read the draft regulations here: http://pmg-assets.s3-website-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/181012draftreg-registrationofbirthsdeaths.pdf

Organisations such as Lawyers for Human Rights, Centre for Child Law, the Scalabrini Centre and the UCT Refugee Law Clinic sounded the alarm on Wednesday: http://www.lhr.org.za/news/2018/home-affairs-discontinue-birth-certificates-foreign-children
