 People Are Mobilizing World-wide!

On Thursday, 24 August 2006, thousands of people joined TAC's struggle to force the government to listen to the people's demands on health! Coordinated protests and petitioning took place in six provinces in South Africa and in several cities in other countries. We would like to thank everyone for standing with TAC's demands. Continue protesting, leafleting, signing petitions, writing letters and contacting the press to cover our demands until we secure health for all!

In Limpopo, 450 activists gathered at the Department of Health carrying symbolic coffins, crosses, vrot shoes, which they left behind symbolizing the unnecessary deaths of HIV/AIDS in South Africa. The department said they need two weeks to respond to TAC's list of demands. The Head of the HIV Unit told everyone to call daily to ask about the progress. The police were very helpful and the Department of Health's attitude was good.

Eastern Cape

In the Eastern Cape, 400 TAC activists and COSATU supporters marched to the Department of Health and then to the Department of Correctional Services, where they handed over a list of demands. They agreed on a response to the demands in days or they will march back. We would like to thank the police especially Sg. Stemel for all the protection and support of the march because it was an illegal gathering.
