Image: Embrace Dignity and our allies had a successful Freedom March to Parliament on 27 April in SA A petition and memorandum was presented to President Jacob Zuma to demand freedom of those enslaved through prostitution and sex trafficking.

The theme for our march, #NoFreeChoiceMeansNoFreedom is echoed in the words of former President Nelson Mandela when he said: “As long as many of our people still live in utter poverty, as long as children still live under plastic covers, as long as many of our people are still without jobs, no South African should rest and wallow in the joy of freedom”. Mandela knew that to be free did not merely translate to casting off one’s own chains, “but [entails living] in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others”.   Read More...

New forms of old power

Legislative mechanisms to partially democratise traditional leadership and create accountability have largely failed. Courts of law have repeatedly punished rural citizens trying to get traditional leaders to account to their communities in the North West. To whom do mining-affected communities turn?   Read More...
