National Protest

Given the appalling (virtually non-existent) roll out of the ECD Employment Stimulus Relief Fund package, we are asked all ECD stakeholders to join us in putting pressure on provincial DSD, across South Africa by taking part in our national protest. The action took place across the country, on Wednesday 12 May, Thursday 13 May, & Friday 14 May.

See below for all details of the protest (click on the image to enlarge), or download the full set of posters here.


Watch a video we sent to Minister of Social Development, Lindiwe Zulu, showing the Protest Action that took place across South Africa.

Huge thanks to every individual, and all the ECD centres, that made the effort to make a sign, organise a group, stand outside, and make your voices heard!
