A day of action is being planned for Wednesday 30 September 2015, with two mass marches being scheduled for Pretoria and Cape Town, and a series of other activities will take place around the country as South African citizens proclaim “Enough is Enough” with regard to the high levels of corruption, and the devastating impact this has on our society.
More than 700 arts practitioners and other stakeholders in the creative sector have publicly endorsed the day of action against corruption; these include writers Zakes Mda, Mark Gevisser, Margie Orford and Paul Grootboom; actors Sandra Prinsloo, Sharleen Surtie-Richards, Mncedisis Shabangu, Gcina Mhlope and Marius Weyers and musicians Marah Louw, David Kramer, Concord Nkabinde and Karen Zoid.
The organisers have set a goal of 1000 organisations and institutions to endorse the Campaign. There are three subcommittees helping to organize the arts and creative sectors as part of the campaign in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town. Collectively, we would like to have at least 100 arts, culture and heritage organisations endorse the campaign nationally, accounting for 10% of the total number of endorsing organisations.
