Here is an image gallery with photo's of the day of action last Friday, 14 March 2014 where Grahamstown learners became involved in the Khulumani Water for Dignity School Water Forums.

AN OPEN INVITATION TO JOIN A PROTEST AGAINST POLICE BRUTALITY AT THE JOHANNESBURG CENTRAL POLICE STATION ON NATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS DAY: 21 March 2014: 10:00 - 12:00

On Friday, March 14 2014, Khulumani's in-service trainees will present their implementation plans for introducing the Kumnandi model of small-scale organic production in their own areas - the semi-formal peri-urban large settlements in and around Khutsong in the West Rand goldfields of Gauteng; the rural district of Moutse in Limpopo Provincce with its long-standing history of community activism and in the south coast area of Amanzimtoti in KwaZulu Natal.

March 14 is International Rivers Day. It is an International Day of Action for people to speak in the name of rivers which cannot speak for themselves, about what threatens rivers and the communities that depend on rivers.

This year Khulumani Water for Dignity will celebrate the day by launching School Water Forums in all 22 schools in Grahamstown East.

On Sunday 09 March 2014, Khulumani Support Group lost one of its members who passed away due to a motor vehicle accident in Moutse West around Marble Hall. The late Mr. Phillip Aphane became an active Khulumani member in 2010.

The panel debate took place at the AFRICA MEDIA MATRIX Sunday evening, March 9, 2014 in Grahamstown and was entitled "Marikana in Crisis? The challenge of inadequate water infrastructure."

The producer, Marc Davies, wrote, "A big thank you for Khulumani's involvement in OppiTV Live last night. We believe that the conversation was valuable and we hope you will share this video far and wide.

The "Makana in Crisis?" segment begins at 06:27 minutes and can be accessed via http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQeOpB3k9tQ.

On Monday 24 February 2014, the Khulumani Water for Dignity fieldworkers from Makana Municipality participated in a meeting of the Eastern Cape Water Caucus which was convened by the Environmental Monitoring Group and hosted at the King Theatre in King Williams Town.

SABC 3 screened a Special Assignment documentary about Dr Wouter Basson's involvement in the SADF's notorious chemical and biological weapons programme that was initiated in the early 1980s and took viewer back through the TRC Hearing into the programme, followed by Dr Basson's criminal trial and finally his disciplinary hearing before the South African Health Professions Council for professional misconduct.

Dr Basson was found guilty of having violated every code of medical ethics. He awaits sentencing shortly.

On February 19, 2014, Judy Seidman and Nomarussia Bonase visited with the Marikana widows in Pretoria for several hours at their request.

Judy shared the short film that she had produced of the workshop with the widows. The widows felt that the video accurately reflected their ideas and they requested that it be shown widely.

They also suggested that further video installments be produced to tell their stories, especially as they are still treated as mere observers of the Farlam Commission proceedings. Each widow received a copy of the DVD. 

Before you know kindness as the deepest thing inside, you must know sorrow
 
As the other deepest thing. You must wake up with sorrow.
 
You must speak it till your voice
catches the thread of all sorrows
and you see the size of the cloth.
 
Then it is only kindness that makes sense anymore,
only kindness that ties your shoes
and sends you out into the day
to mail letters and purchase bread,
only kindness that raises its head
from the crowd of the world to say
it is I you have been looking for,
and then goes with you every where
like a shadow or a friend.
