The world is changing fast and to keep up you need local knowledge with global context.
There are not too many better places to be than at Trafalgar Square on a London Spring morning. On Saturday there is an added reason to get there.
I’ll be joining other Saffers beneath Nelson’s Column to register a physical protest against the corrupted SA president’s bizarre actions of the past week. His gamble of firing the final bulwark between National Treasury and Zupta-scale plundering cannot be allowed to go unnoticed. Doing so is an endorsement of the next stage in the criminal extraction of national resources.
Evil flourishes when good men stand aside and do nothing. Making the journey into London to join the protest outside South Africa House is not exactly lying down in front of a tank. But it is an important gesture of solidarity with compatriots back home.
Hope to see you on Saturday at 11am.
