PRESS ALERT: IMMEDIATE

Announcement of Raak Wys Campaign: re Good Hope Centre Matter

Following the City of Cape Town's decision to lease the Good Hope Centre to an international film company, SACTWU and the Cape Malay Choir Board had separate protests expressing their dissatisfaction with the City’s decision.
The City has made various commitments to follow a public participation process and yet, months later, no further communication has been forthcoming from the Mayor of the City.
The Southern African Clothing and Textile Workers’ Union (SACTWU), the Cape Malay Choir Board, The Bo-Kaap Civic Association and the District 6 Working Committee have resolved to step up the pace and will be having a press conference to announce the RAAK WYS! campaign and plan mass action against the City by staging a major march to the Mayor's office within the next few weeks.
The details of the press conference are as follows:

Date: 12 August 2015
Time: 11h00


Venue: 3rd Floor Industria House 350 Victoria Road Salt River

Representatives of the above organisations will be addressing the media.

Media are hereby invited to attend.
