We intend to root out corruption in government and business. This must start with President Zuma and the corrupt syndicate he leads. We call on the ANC to recall President Zuma!
On the 7th of August, 2017, #UniteBehind mobilised thousands of people to the streets in protest of State Capture.The day before the vote of no confidence in President Zuma, religious and community leaders led the “People’s March” of people’s organisations, farmworkers, unions, community-based and human rights organisations. It was joined by the UDF Veterans formation, leaders in the anti-apartheid struggles of the ‘80s, who came out to march with us and tackle the current crisis. Thousands of people marched together, independent of political parties, and united in their message for the ANC to recall President Zuma.
A secret nuclear deal between President Jacob Zuma and Russia was blocked in our courts thanks to the work of Right 2 Know, EarthLifeAfrica and the Southern African Faith Communities Environment Institute.
Under President Zuma vast parts of our state institutions and state-owned enterprises have become captured. To allow this to happen, President Zuma has destroyed the crime-fighting leadership in SAPS, the former Scorpions, the Hawks, the entire National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), and the SA Revenue Service (SARS) to protect himself, his rich friends, and his corrupt faction in the ANC.
President Zuma has fired two Finance ministers, Nhlanhla Nene and Pravin Gordhan who have tried to block deals such as the Nuclear Deal and the recapitalisation of a bankrupt SAA. If the President and his network are allowed to carry on looting the state, it will plunge us into odious debt we will be unable to manage. Government will be unable to meet all the basic needs and rights we agreed on, and every government programme from health to street-cleaning, grants, education and many more will be cut.
The affiliates of #UniteBehind have come together to address state capture in their various capacities. Check out our activist calendar to find an action against State Capture near you!
The Eskom Monitoring Project (EMP) was established in 2017 to support the work of the public hearings into Eskom and to raise public awareness, engagement and understanding of the process.
