Newly formed People's Movement calls on South Africans to find common ground
Political parties, civil society and religious communities have collaborated to form a new People's Movement.
They’ve called for another national day of action on freedom on 27 April.
DA leader and movement member Mmusi Maimane explains that the People's Movement will not be contesting elections.
He advises that all groups and organisations involved in the movement are committed to empowering all South Africans.
This is the freedom moment and the vision is to engage across various platforms of society and mobilise in the crisis South Africa is facing.Mmusi Maimane, DA leader
The group says its aims are to remove President Jacob Zuma, protect the Constitution, restore power to people and safeguard the state to implement economic development.
He says it is time for South Africans to reclaim their freedom and agree on the things they want to see changed.
Let's accept that we have a Constitution that we should defend. Let's agree that we want a non-racial South Africa which creates more economic opportunities.Mmusi Maimane, DA leader
We want to lift the country up collectively.Mmusi Maimane, DA leader
