South Africa: The Unemployed Youth of Grahamstown Issue a Call to Students for Solidarity in Action
southern africa | miscellaneous | non-anarchist press Thursday March 18, 2010 13:48 by Ayanda Kota - Unemployed People’s Movement ayandakota at webmail dot co dot za 0786256462
The lives of the unemployed youth in Grahamstown may seem to be a world apart from those of the students. For us the only choices are to accept defeat and to sink into depression or to organise and fight for a place in this society. For you it seems that there is a clear path to a good life.
Right now we are poisoned by the same water from the Makana Municipality. Right now the same tenderpreneurs are poisoning the whole society for everyone.
No country can be stable or just when some young people are on the way to wealth and power while others remain stuck in unemployment. Join us and fight for a country where everyone has a future.
Together we can fight for:
· Free education for the poor and the working class. No one should be excluded from university because they do not come from a rich family. We are willing to fight together with students to ensure that the doors of learning and culture remain open to all
All around the world students are rebelling to demand an end to the commodification of education. These student rebellions are now moving outside of the universities to link up with social movements and demand a different kind of future. Here in South Africa the culture of student solidarity with social movements is being revived in Durban and in Cape Town. We are calling for it to also be revived here in Grahamstown.
We are marching on Friday 19th March. The march begins at extension 7 at 7:00 am and will continue to the Municipal Offices. Will raise all of these issue and we will keep raising them until they are addressed. All students are welcome to join the march and to work together with us for a society in which there is a place for everyone.
