Khulumani features in the latest MEDICO publication. The second newsletter published by medico international for 2013 carries artwork produced by two of the Marikana widows from the Voices of the Marikana Widows project.
An abbreviated English version of the medico report is attached - Anger and Disappointment Grow in Post-Apartheid South Africa.
The report reflects on the many challenges that confront the South Africa of today due to deepening social and economic inequality.
Khulumani Support Group will be at the National Arts Festival that opens on Thursday evening June 27 in Grahamstown and runs through to the following Sunday July 7, 2013.
Khulumani is being featured in programmes at two events that take place during the National Arts Festival that opens in Grahamstown in the Eastern Cape on Thursday evening, June 27 and continues until Sunday July 7, 2013.
These are at WORDFEST on July 4 at Eden Grove and at the Legacies of Apartheid Conference on July 6 in the Senior Common Room and Accounting Department Lecture Room in the Rhodes Administration Building.
Khulumani has been welcoming the participation of Sri Lankan human rights defender, Mr Ruki Fernando in its activities.
Ruki is being hosted in South Africa by the South African Catholic Bishops' Conference. He presented a paper at a conference in Istanbul last week and prepared a story about "The Standing Man" in Taksim Square, the epicentre of the citizen stands for justice in Turkey.
The Khulumani Forum Theatre Group (KFTG) will partake in the “Take A Stand” procession on Saturday 1 June 2013. Visit http://takeastand.org/ for more info.
The procession is an all-inclusive, non-partisan and non-sectarian civil society procession which will take place in Soweto with 30,000 men, women and children. This will mark the beginning of a movement by a nation determined to regain the chain of values that makes us truly human.
The rate of violence against children and women and equally shocking to men, who do not believe should be allowed to continue in their name, has reached intolerable levels. And the rape and murder of Anene Booysen was the most excruciating to recall.
