#UniteBehind coalition to march to Parliament ahead of no confidence vote

While the motion of no confidence against President Jacob Zuma is due to take place in Parliament on Tuesday, a group called #UniteBehind coalition will be marching on Monday calling on the ANC to recall President Zuma.

Unite Behind is a coalition of Western Cape based organisations. It is a main coalition that's gotten together particularly made up of grassroots, working class organisations.

This is a coalition of organisations dedicated to combine resistance to state capture with ongoing struggles for social justices in our country.

The group will be assembling at 3pm to begin marching to Parliament, says Isaacs.

He says they will be converging outside Parliament when the Speaker of Parliament Baleka Mbete will be making her announcement whether the voting will be made through a secret ballot or not.

Everyone is welcome to join us for this march at Keizergracht Street at 3pm... There's going to be fantastic speakers like Mcebisi Jonas, Anglican Archbishop Thabo Makgoba and Methodist Presiding Bishop Zipho Siwa....

Doron Isaacs, organiser of #UniteBehind March

It is going to be quite an important and momentous event highlighting a lot of injustices in our society.
