On Monday, the group met at the Old Assembly in Parliament where they shared shocking details about how communities are being torn apart by the drugs and gangsterism that are destroying the youth.
Included were Taking Back our Streets, Bonteheuwel Civic, The Voice of Parkwood, Lavender Hill, Manenberg, and Mitchells Plain.
They met to discuss a peace summit and how they were going to deal with crime, and write a policy document that speaks to the government, so that communities can sleep safe at night. They are planning to present this document to the government on Women’s Day on August 9, when the group and other sectors plan to march to Parliament.
They are hoping that the document serves as a guideline for Police Minister Bheki Cele and community safety MEC Albert Fritz.
