COSATU and 50 community organisations, including the SACC, MJC and others came together to express their disgust and communal anguish against the rape and abuse of women and children in our country. The forum pledged their support and cooperation with the Cosatu initiative as well as for joint coordination of a longer term campaign.
Such a campaign will have a defensive leg as a short-term objective and a changed environment as a longer-term vision.
The forum also agreed to encourage their members and invite the broader community to a Rally on Sunday 17 February 2013, 3PM, at the Grand Parade, where all political parties, NGO’s, faith-based organisations and communities will be afforded an opportunity to speak out against this scourge that threatens the social fabric of our society.
All political parties and community organisations are invited to attend Sunday's event and will be afforded an opportunity to add messages on behalf of their respective organisations.
All community members are invited to come to the Grand Parade on Sunday!
FREE TRAINS ARE AVAILABLE TO ALL AND FROM ALL AREAS INTO TOWN AND BACK!
