Western Cape to host 100MenMarch...

In the spirit of Thuma Mina, Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) will lead the Western Cape provincial 100MenMarch to create awareness of violence against women and children. 


The Western Cape 100 Men March takes place after the successful national march held in Pretoria on Tuesday, 10 July. 


The 100 Men March will take place on Thursday, 12 July 2018 in the City of Cape from 12pm to 2pm, starting at Keizergracht Street (opposite CPUT Campus), leading to Parliament. 


In marching together with business organisations, civil society groupings and government, participants will demonstrate a united resolve to fight the scourge of violence against women and children. 


The march will draw 100 men from different categories across society to create a visible front of men marching together to show their commitment to making South Africa safer for women and children. 


On average, one in five South African women older than 18 has experienced physical violence.


Impact on traffic  


Traffic flow will be affected by the march for a limited time and traffic officials will be on hand to assist in keeping traffic moving. The following streets will be affected:


  • Darling street

  • Adderley street

  • Spin street

  • Plein street
     

Members of the public can join in the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag ThumaMina 100MenMarch. 


All stakeholders supporting the march are urged to sign an online petition available on: https://www.gopetition.com/petitions/100-men-march.html. – SAnews.gov.za
