This follows after the Government Gazette of 21 May 2021 invited the public to comment on the proposed amendment act. Various organisations, associations and political parties expressed their dissatisfaction with the proposed amendments and several petitions and comment platforms stemmed from this.

After the conference a motion was adopted that the organisations will inter alia share information and ideas with each other around the organisations’ projects and/or campaigns against the draft amendments as well as cooperation with regard to possible litigation against the latter.

“It was unbelievable to experience the feeling of unity during the conference. The inputs that were given, as well as the spirit with which such inputs were accepted, create immense hope for the fight that lies ahead,” says Marnus Kamfer, Legal and Risk Manager at AfriForum.
