Khulumani calls on Nersa to reject Eskom’s application for a 25,3% price increase on 29 June 2015 in the context of already disastrous impacts of the April 2015 increases on the living conditions of people in poor communities

Khulumani Support Group joins its social justice partners in declaring that electricity is a public good that must be accessible to all the country’s people. The present request from Eskom to the National Energy Regulator in South Africa (Nersa) for a 25,3% price increase for the 2015/16 and 2017/18 financial years, puts electricity out of reach of poor people and threatens to reverse hard-won gains made by government in providing access to electricity for poor communities.

Khulumani Continues the Demand for Justice, Redress And Accountability for Widows of the Marikana Massacre and their Families

Thirty four months after the start of the Farlam Commission, the release of the Marikana Report yesterday appears to confirm that "there is as yet no justice or accountability for the extreme violence visited upon" striking mine workers.

The statement of widows of the Marikana Massacre that was read onto the record of the Commission at its closing session, is in most respects confirmed by the findings of Judge Farlam and his co-Commissioners. 

On International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, 26 June 2015, Khulumani expresses concern at the growing prevalence in the country of the use of torture as a police investigative method

June 26 is not only International Day in Support of Victims of Torture but also the anniversary of the Freedom Charter, a human rights declaration adopted in 1955 at the Congress of the People gathering at Freedom Square, in Kliptown, Soweto.

The Freedom Charter declares that All Shall Enjoy Equal Human Rights. The Charter proclaims a vision of a country where peoples' homes are protected by law from police raids in which the privacy, dignity and security of persons were violated as an all-too-common feature of apartheid police raids.  

Khulumani Participates in Marking World Refugee Day in Cape Town on Friday, 19 June 2015

In an interview on Radio 786 this morning, Khulumani's Director, Dr. Marjorie Jobson expressed concern that South Africans generally seem not to understand that a refugee is just another human being who has had to flee political persecution of war, and who has a right in terms of international law to be protected and to be provided with social assistance while living in our midst in our communities.
