ANC calls on all South Africans to join the protest march to the Goodmans Gallery

25 May 2012

The protest march to the Goodman Gallery called by the African National Congress (ANC) is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, 29 May 2012.

All South Africans, members of the ANC and supports including our Alliance partners are requested to gather at Zoo Lake Park, Jan Smuts Avenue, Parkview in Johannesburg, from 9h00 and the march to the gallery will commence at 10h00.

The march called by the ANC is a protest against the continued display and exhibition in that gallery’s website of an insulting portrait of President Jacob Zuma. It is also meant to condemn the defacing of an ANC logo with an inscription "FOR SALE" and "SOLD" as it continue to be displayed in that Gallery.

We believe all these actions by the gallery are not only a violation of the right to dignity of cde President Jacob Zuma but are a clear and calculated attack on the ANC. We therefore again call on all South Africans, members and supports of the ANC and our Alliance Partners to come and register their outrage at this insult and attack on our President and the ANC.
