Petition to install a fence around the Stilfontein Railway Line

Children and animals who live near the railway line can easily wander onto the tracks and put their lives at risk. And criminals can freely use the unfenced railway line as an easy escape route.

Enough is enough! We cannot endanger young lives like this, we must make our community safer!

Please sign our petition calling on the minister of Transport and Transnet to install a fence around the Stilfontein Railway Line and to put back pedestrian crossings.

Roads in the North West are in a terrible state. They damage cars and are dangerous to drive on!

R50 million for our farmers

Whilst we are relieved that the Eastern Cape government has finally declared a provincial disaster, sensible spending in this time of crisis will help a great deal.

It’s time for the Department of Rural Development and Agrarian Reform to cut back on the millions it spends on things like advertising, catering, travel, and venue hire. If they do, we can save up to R50 million for our farmers!

These cuts include:

  • A 50% cut in advertising – R4,743 million savings
  • A 60% cut in catering – R6,414 million savings
  • A 11.4% cut in communication (G&S) – R2 million savings
  • A 19.8% cut in Consumable Supplies – R2 million savings
  • A 31.4% cut in Stationery and Office Supplies – R2 million savings
  • A 23.9% cut in Travel and Subsistence – R20 million savings
  • A 20% cut in Training and Development – R5,158 million savings (underspent by 28% in 2018/19)
  • A 10% cut in Fleet Services – R2,521 million in savings (underspent by 6% in 2018/19)
  • A 0.25% cut in Salaries and wages – R4,625 million in savings
  • A 15% cut in Venue and Facilities hire – R648,000 saving (underspent by 15.5% in 2018/19)

Please co-sign our appeal to the Eastern Cape government to cut unnecessary spending to the tune of R50 million and put it towards drought-relief funding instead.

Whilst R50 million is a drop in the ocean in this crisis, it is substantially better than the paltry R3.2 million that has been made available by the Department for drought relief to date.

Please co-sign our appeal for sensible spending in this time of crisis.

If we stand together, we can get our farmers R50 million more!

Petition to stop illegal rubbish burning at the Matlosana Waste Dumping Facility

The City of Matlosana is violating environmental laws by burning rubbish at the Matlosana Waste Dumping Site.

The waste by-law of the City clearly states: “no person may burn waste either in a public place or private place, for the purpose of disposing of that waste”.

Illegally burning rubbish harms the environment and poses a health risk to us residents – particularly those who suffer from respiratory tract-related illnesses.

Sign our petition to force the City of Matlosana to implement a sustainable way to handle waste that will not harm the environment and affect residents’ health.

Western Cape Safety Plan

Western Cape Premier Alan Winde has announced the largest and most comprehensive provincial safety plan in South Africa’s history.

“I ask you, the public, to measure us and me on this plan.”

– Western Cape Premier, Alan Winde

The plan will cost the Western Cape government upwards of R1 billion, and will introduce:

👮🏾‍♂️ 3000 new law enforcement officers deployed where and when crime
happens;
📱 Deployment based on data-led technology;
📝 150 investigators to prepare dockets for prosecution;
📉 A world-class, evidence-led and integrated violence prevention
programme;
🚨 A safety priority for every Cabinet Minister with accountable, transparent
metrics.

As part of the rollout of this plan, Premier Alan Winde wants to hear what more you think the government could be doing to keep communities safe.

NHI-court-action

If we know anything about the ANC, it is that they will stop at nothing to fill their pockets with taxpayers’ money, and the National Health Insurance (NHI) will allow them to do just that.

If the ANC pushes the NHI Bill through Parliament, despite thousands of objections, then we will take action against them in the Constitutional Court.

Please consider making a small donation to the cause, as we prepare for a possible decade-long Constitutional Court battle to stop the ANC from banning private medical aids, forcing you to use government healthcare, and collapsing the South African economy.

Every donation, no matter how small, adds up. Your contribution could save thousands of lives.
