Struggles of Members of the PAIA Civil Society Network for Access to State-Held Information Continue

Khulumani Support Group is a member of the National PAIA Civil Society Network, a coalition of organisations that works for the achievement of transparent and accountable government through empowering its constituencies to apply the country's now 14-year old legislation on the promotion of access to information, PAIA.

Khulumani was the very first organisation in South Africa to use the then-new and untested legislation enacted in 2000, which had been modelled on similar legislation in Sweden.

April 22 is Earth Day: There are everyday actions that citizens can take anywhere

A message for Earth Day 2015:

Climate change could accelerate beyond our control threatening our survival and everything we value. Our societies need to shift to 100% clean energy. We need to actively phase out carbon pollution. Our world is worth saving. Now is our moment to act.

For 45 years, Earth Day has been bringing communities and organizations together to advocate for a healthier environment and a sustainable life. The role of citizens in protecting the environment is critical. Today, people everywhere are experiencing first-hand the devastating consequences of countries polluting their way to the top.

Populations worldwide are in immediate danger, making it more urgent to act than ever before. We must come together and inspire our communities to do their part in securing a healthy and sustainable future for the planet.

Earth Day’s Global 2015 Theme: It’s Our Turn to Lead.

Let this be the year in which citizens and organizations divest from fossil fuels and put their money into clean energy solutions. Political progress has been slow-moving to cut carbon emissions. Sustainability is the only answer to development. On this Earth Day, join together to show the world a new direction.

SOME SUGGESTIONS FOR ACTION:

  • Learn about the Paris Climate Treaty.
  • Join the movement to plant more trees.
  • Organise recycling initiatives to collect and process for income plastic, metal, paper and glass.
  • Organise a community dialogue about climate change and how to reduce the damage we do to our environment.
