The dangers of the unstructured resumption of the sale of alcohol

2 June 2020 9:54 PM

Guest : Shaun Shelley | Organiser at SA Drug Policy Week |

The lifting of the prohibition of the sale of alcoholic beverages in South Africa may not
be as insignificant as we would like to think it is. The implications for those who depend
on alcohol are severe.
On 1st of June 2020, South Africa moved from ‘level 4’ to ‘level 3’ restrictions
promulgated by the government in response to the SARS-Cov-2 pandemic
The South African Network of People Who Use Drugs (SANPUD) note with alarm the
significant size of the crowds that have gathered outside of retail liquor outlets and the
celebratory atmosphere accompanying them.

''As a recovering addict I am taking the Government on, as one of the 10 co-applicants in the BATSA case'

2 June 2020 9:40 PM

Guest : Melinda Ferguson | Motoring Jounalist|

During Lockdown there are many addicts who have relapsed on hard drugs because
they couldn't access or afford tobacco. Heroin and cocaine.. Tik.. Meth.. Nyaope.
All these "hard" drugs are all much cheaper than cigarettes at the moment.
As a recovering addict I am taking the Government on, as one of the 10 co-applicants in
the BATSA case. I am acting within my own rights as a recovering addict who has had to
deal with the trauma of this senseless prohibition.
I speak for all of us addicts. There was little thought put into this prohibition and there
has been an enormous infringement on our mental health, our financial sanity and
autonomy over our bodies.

000 criminal complaints against the SA Police Service since 2012. It only helped secure

Lockdown regulations declared invalid and unconstitutional by high court

2 June 2020 8:32 PM

Guest :  Lawson Naidoo | Executive Secretary at Council For The Advancement Of The
                                          Constitution (Casac)|

The Pretoria High Court has declared the regulations promulgated for COVID-19
lockdown levels four and three as unconstitutional and invalid.
Reyno Dawid de Beer and Liberty Fighters Network challenged the regulations as set by
Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma,
arguing that they encroached on and limited their rights as contained in the Bill of
Rights in the Constitution.
The court found that the lockdown regulations indeed did not satisfy the rationality test
and were not justifiable in an open and democratic society based on human dignity,
equality and freedom as contemplated in Section 36 of the Constitution.

1 June 2020 9:35 PM

Guest : Andrew Thompson, freelance writer for Business Insider 

A few weeks before President Cyril Ramaphosa declared Covid-19 a national disaster, a
local swimwear company called Granadilla had no idea that it would soon have to set
aside its range of quirky board shorts and bikinis - and would instead be delivering
actual fruit and vegetables.
But the retail industry has taken a hard knock since South Africa's Covid-19 lockdown.
And business partners Joshua Meltz and Adam Duxbury had to do something urgently.
Business Insider freelance writer Andrew Thompson joins us on the line on their story
and other businesses being forced to "get creative" to stay afloat

Child Protection Week 2020 – How do we protect children during COVID-19?

1 June 2020 8:36 PM

Guest : Lucy Jamieson | Senior researcher at Children's Institute (UCT)| 

31 May - 7 June 2020 is Child Protection Week.
National Child Protection Week is commemorated in the country annually to raise
awareness of the rights of children as articulated in the Constitution of the Republic of
South Africa and Children's Act (Act No. 38 of 2005).
(The campaign began in 1997 and it aims to mobilise all sectors of society to ensure
that children are cared for and protected. While the initiative is led by the Minister of
Social Development, it is every citizen’s duty to a role in protecting children and
creating a safe and secure environment for them.)
The COVID-19 pandemic is stripping families and communities of the resources they
need to protect children.
The government is calling on us to “protect children during COVID-19 and beyond” but
experts at the Children's Institute, University of Cape Town ask how can we protect
children in such constrained circumstances?
