SSN CONTRIBUTION TO GLOBAL WEEK OF ACTION


The Swaziland Solidarity Network [SSN] supports the call by the Swaziland United Democratic Front (SUDF) for a global week of action beginning (5th – 9th September 2011). The SSN is moved by the clear demands by the people of Swaziland namely:

1. SA bailout for SD (insist on stringent & measurable governance reform conditions with taut timelines
2. No to salary cuts!
3. Education crisis (demand tertiary scholarships for ALL qualifying candidates and re-open & keep colleges open)
4. Judicial crisis (demand sacking of CJ & High Court registrar, re-instate Thomas Masuku, & independence of the judiciary)
5. Abolition of Tinkhundla & return to multiparty democracy

As The SSN we will be part of these protest action all the way for the democratisation of Swaziland. Our target area for protests is the Swaziland High Commission in Pretoria, where we will hold a picket on the 5th and the 6th of September. These will then be moved to the consulate in Braamfontein, Johannesburg from the 7th to the 9th.
