Statement of Support
The Red List (South Africa) movement is essentially about active citizenry. This is a movement that empowers ordinary citizens.
It gives power back to the people in instances where their rights have been violated, overlooked or ignored.
The Red List movement and its initiatives provide a platform for citizens to have a voice. It is a platform that supports universal and constitutionally entrenched rights such as freedom of expression, freedom of movement/association and freedom of choice and dignity.
It is also a platform that empowers citizens to take action against any institutions and organisations that would dare to interfere with the constitutional rights of citizens.
It is a great honour and privilege to partner with and be associated with the Red List (South) African movement and its founder Catherine Raphaely.
