On the 26th April 2017, Earthlife Africa-JHB and the Southern African Faith Communities’ Environment Institute (SAFCEI) finally blocked the unlawful and unconstitutional actions of the South African government in its nuclear deal. We are immensely grateful for the support and encouragement we have received from Earth Keepers all over the world – it is only through this that we have been able to prevail in the face of all odds. But as much as we celebrate this ruling, we are also mindful that there is still much work to be done. The court case win is a strong step in the direction of energy justice, but we need to keep holding government to account to ensure that transparency and accountability don’t fall by the wayside again. To achieve a sustainable and just energy future for South Africa, we would like to pave the way forward together with you through continuous dialogues as well as through your generous support. Moreover, we have successfully launched the Active Citizens Network to work towards a more compassionate and just world.
SAFCEI and SDCEA invites you to a NUCLEAR Court Case Update where you will be able to engage and become more informed about the current state of the campaign, and get clarification and answers to some of your questions.
