  • Tell Government we urgently need a Child Support Grant increase of R500 for the next 6 months
    - 21 April 2020 - President Ramaphosa announced that child support grant beneficiaries will receive an extra R300 in May and from June to October they will receive an additional R500 each month. The social grant increase was less than the campaign called for, but this is a step in the right direction. All other grant beneficiaries will receive an extra R250 per month for the next six months. In addition, a special Covid-19 Social Relief of Distress grant of R350 a month for the next six months will be paid to individuals who are currently unemployed and do not receive any other form of social grant or UIF payment. - 23 April 2020 - Sassa has now stated that the Child Support Grant increase for beneficiaries from June to October is not for each child, but for each caregiver. This is unacceptable. Campaign supporters mobilised and demanded President Ramaphosa to stick to his commitment to an increase for each beneficiary, not just caregiver. The President ignored this demand. - 13 October 2020 - The top-ups on social grants were scheduled to be cut by the end of October. Campaign supporters mobilised in huge numbers to contact the Presidency, Deputy President, Minister of Finance and Minister of Social Development. The top-ups were cut. However, the R350 COVID-19 SRD grant was kept.

The Department of Justice provided a supporting submission to the affidavits submitted by the Nelson Mandela Foundation. The Equality Court agreed that the gratuitous displays of the apartheid flag should be banned. https://www.news24.com/SouthAfrica/News/apartheid-flag-ruling-gratuitous-display-constitutes-hate-speech-20190821
