Date: 15 April 2016 Time: 12:00 Venue: In front of the bust of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, East London - All Welcome

Dear Former Commissioners of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and all who were involved in its work, Honourable Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, Dr Alex Boraine, Advocate Chris de Jager, Reverend Bongani Finca, Justice Sisi Khampepe, Mr Richard Lyster, Deputy Minister Hlengiwe Mkhize, Dr Mapule Ramashala, Dr Fazel Randera, Ms Yasmin Sooka, Ms Glenda Wildschut, Professor Emeritus Pieter Meiring, and former staff of the TRC,

Today, exactly twenty years since the TRC Victim Hearings opened in East London, we remember with sadness those who served the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, who have now passed on including Reverend Dr Khoza Mgojo and Mr Wynand Malan.

Today, 15 April 2016, we have chosen as the national membership organisation of victims and survivors of apartheid atrocities, to mark the symbolic importance of the date by gathering in front of the venue of that important hearing.

Letter from Sustaining the Wild Coast To Department of Mineral Resources re Xolobeni Mining and Violence - 31 March 2016

The attached letter has been sent from Sustaining the Wild Coast (SWC) to the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) regarding the violence and intimidation at Xolobeni and the role of the DMR in facilitating and allowing it to continue. 

The flood of civil society support and correspondence sent to the DMR has surely put some pressure on them, as the Minister's Chief Advisor and the Direct-General of the DMR are visiting Xolobeni today (8 April 2016). We look forward to the updates from the Amadiba Crisis Committee (ACC) regarding this visit.
