THE FIGHT INEQUALITY ALLIANCE SA MARKS OCTOBER AS A MONTH OF ACTION
Covid-19 has made clear the failures of the state’s neoliberal project. At the end of October, the Minister of Finance will announce the Medium-Term Budget Policy Statement (MTBPS) where he will speak about an “economic recovery”. We know too well that this “recovery” will just be another way to favour the rich and powerful while the rest of us are made to suffer.
Many public debts were not actually used for the real benefit of people and many loan-financed projects have actually been harmful for communities and the environment. And yet these debts are paid using peoples' money.
This toolkit is a call to all street committees, community movements, community-based organisations and groups of individual activists. It calls for the strengthening and building of community bonds and organisation. It calls for us all to protect and support each other. It calls for people power and ground-up responses.
