The Right2Know Campaign has expressed its solidarity with the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa, who were denied the right to assemble outside offices of the National Energy Regulator of South Africa.

Right2Know said it rejects the use of the National Key Points Act as a basis to undermine the basic right of South Africans to gather and protest.

Right2Know’s Dale McKinley said this is another example of the abuse of the National Key Points Act which Right2Know has pointed out is completely out of control.

McKinley adds that as Right2Know they don’t know what is being put under the National Key Points now and peoples rights are being circumscribed without anyone even knowing.

NUMSA’s advocacy on this issue and wiliness to actually go ahead and do their action is fully supported by a range of civil society organisations and as Right2Know they will continue alongside NUMSA and other organisations and the unions to challenge this act and call for abolishment, McKinley said.
