United Front (UF) Service delivery march – Tuesday 25 November 2014 | Ekurhuleni – Gauteng Province

Over the last few months, different organisations in Ekurhuleni – trade unions, community organisations, political movement, civic bodies, women’s movements, faith-based organisations, student associations and youth groups – have been meeting to look at problems that affect their communities and constituencies.
These organisations have resolved that the only way to address and resolve their challenges is through a United Front that brings together workers and communities. They have also agreed to kick-off their programme with a march on Tuesday 25 November 2014 to the Mayor of Ekurhuleni’s office at the Germiston Civic Centre.
The demands of Ekurhuleni’s United Front are:

  • Provision of houses to people who have been on the waiting list since 1996
  • A municipal land audit in Ekurhuleni. The municipality cannot continue to say it has no land.
  • The scrapping of the increase from R850 to R3 800 in graveyard costs.
  • Rehabilitation of old Natalspruit Hospital as the new Vosloorus is small.
  • A stop to the plan to sell sportgrounds to the private sector.
  • A halt on outsourcing of water and sanitation services.
  • No to prepaid meters in our townships.
  • Protection of hawkers and local shop-owners from corrupt government official.
  • A commitment on the part of the municipality to procure locally-produced goods and services to ensure protection of local jobs.
  • The municipality to work with Transnet to repair the railway line that connects Union Carriage & Wagon (UCW) with the outside world.

Enough is enough! Sakwanele manje! Golekane Golekane!
A Luta Continua!!!
