Right2Know activists will today stand in solidarity with allied organisations at a picket outside ICASA.

The regulator's Complaints and Compliance Committee will be hearing a formal complaint brought by Media Monitoring Africa, SOS Support Public Broadcasting Coalition and the Freedom of Expression Institute regarding the SABC's decision to ban visuals of the destruction of property in protests across its news and current affairs bulletins.

Right2Know Communicator Busi Mtabane said “Right2Know campaign activists will today stand in solidarity with allied organisations at a picket outside ICASA.”

Meanwhile, DA will also picket outside the ICASA headquarters ahead of a hearing on the SABC’s ban on the airing of footage of violent protest.

DA National Spokesperson Phumzile Van Damme says “We believe South Africans need to be shown the truth, nothing but the truth about the conditions in South Africa.”

We therefore today will be supporting the civil society organisations that brought that to ICASA.” She added.
