Inverted SA Flag Campaign

Hi all - I don't know if this is acceptable here, if not - please delete the thread, mods.

Jacob Zuma is facing his Vote of No Confidence in Parliament on Tuesday 8th August 2017.
There are various protests, candle light vigils etc being planned.

Not all of us can attend, or live in areas where it is too far to travel to a protest.

We would like to ask all South Africans to join us in flying the national flag upside down from Sunday morning until Tuesday evening.

Flying an ensign or national flag upside down is a universal method of declaring an emergency, and is a valid use of a National Flag.

Those that do not fly flags, are invited to change their Social Media profile pics to that of an inverted SA Flag.

Please share with everyone you know, and show solidarity with other South Africans of all races.

Each to their own I suppose. Support opposition to whatever issue can be done in many ways :good:

I see this petition is not doing too well >>> https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/grant-white-south-africans-refugee-status-united-states

but it is poorly worded and no proper supporting evidence.

Why would anyone want to leave SA - if we can just get a government that works, a president that's honest, and do away with BBEEE life would be great...

The problem is that even a new govt won't be able to cure the crime rate for decades to come, since the only solution is to implement very harsh punishment and achieve a very high success rate in catching and convicting criminals. The two main deterrents to crime.

Well, the change may not be immediate, but that does not mean that we stop trying....

Well, we tried - the outcome was pretty much predetermined, but we had to give it a go....
I made a lot of friends, and contacts from every race group in the process - in fact I found more Black people were prepared to get off their asses to march, protest and collaborate than whites.....

If the cANCer was smart (which they're not, they're as dumb as they come) they would have voted against the vote of no confidence but the very next day arrange internally to remove Zuma as president. That would have set a message of leadership.

He isn't the "Teflon President" for nothing. Amazing how he just does his own thing regardless :crazy1:
