ANC congratulates Million Man March Organisers
10 June 2008
The African National Congress congratulates the organisers and the many South Africans who participated in the `Million Man March` held at the Union Buildings in Tshwane today (10 June 2008).
The ANC commends them for the initiative they have taken to speak out about crime in the country. Particular mention must go to actor Desmond Dube for the work he has done to arrange and popularise this event.
We hope that this initiative, together with others being undertaken by citizens around the country, will contribute to a concerted national effort to rid our nation of this scourge.
If we are to successfully tackle crime, the work of government and the police must be reinforced by the practical actions of individuals and communities.
Today`s march is an important step in that direction.
African National Congress
