Is this the government we wanted?: iLIVE
This is your country. It is your home. No matter where you go, SA will forever be the land where your roots are planted in. This afternoon will be a moment that could make or break our DEMOCRACY.
Yes this DEMOCRACY allows us to enjoy values such as freedom of expression, association and a free media. This DEMOCRACY promotes a transparent,accountable&responsive government.
Today, the ANC of the Pirates of Polokwane wants to tell us as a country that Information about anything in government can be CLASSIFIED and if anyone brings corruption, looting or mismanagement of state resources to the attention of the public, that person will be arrested without being able to argue in court that their actions were out of public interest.
Remember that person could be you, you don't know where you will be working in the future. I would hate to see any of my friends go to prison because they were standing up for social justice.
Put your profile picture as a black blank picture to indicate that this Bill will bring about a blank State whereby we will not be able to view any information unless the government permits.
If this Bill is passed today, that could be the beginning of putting up systems that could lead to a DICTATORSHIP. We deserve to know about our country, we demand our responsibility to hold government accountable!
The Minister of State Security has accused all of us that oppose this Bill as being agents of International Spies. That is an insult not only on our integrity as a people who stand up for social justice, it is also an insult to the constitution.
When you don't agree out of principle you are degraded and trampled upon. Surely this is not the government we want.
