Candlelight vigil for press freedom tomorrow

The Right2Know Campaign will hold a candlelight vigil against the Secrecy Bill on Thursday, 29 November 2012, from 5:30-7:30pm on Joubert Street (corner Hoofd) on the Women's Jail side of the Constitutional Court precinct in Braamfontein.
Supporters are asked to arrive in red and black with a candle. The organisation remains committed to fighting for a just classification law that governs how the State should keep very limited secrets. The Secrecy Bill remains a threat to our democracy and the organisation will continue its campaign to stop the Secrecy Bill, as the ANC pushes it through the NCOP and National Assembly.

The Right2Know Campaign calls on all members of the NCOP to remember the oath they took to uphold that Constitution and vote with their conscience rather than party loyalty to reject this Bill at Thursday's vote.
