WE ARE RUNNING A BIT LATE, CHECK IT !

Friday 13 May 2011

Our communities are very busy organising our No Vote! events just in time for this year’s elections.

Here are a list of the events with links and contacts:

1) 14th May >> Anti-Vote Election Summit held by the Mandela Park Backyarders at Andile Nhose >> Contact Loyiso @ 0737662078

2) 14th May >> No Dignity! No Vote! Why we won’t vote on the 18th of May held at KwaMlamli’s in Gugulethu >> Contact Mncedisi @ 0785808646

As close friends of Lydia, we are very sad and many of us are wondering if stress from looming eviction might have lead to Lydia’s death.  While we will never know for sure, we assert once again: This is not a game! Read the rest of this entry »
