We the undersigned, demand that South Africa’s publishing industry, in particular, Naspers/Media24 and its affiliates such as “Die Burger” put an end to prejudice in publishing and that media companies stop discriminating against employees, clients and the public on the basis of faith, class, colour and creed.
Furthermore we demand that Naspers/Media24 and its affiliates, such as Via Afrika, Paarl Media & Educor carry a “Racism, Sexism and Prejudice-Free” sticker on products until such time as all discrimination is done away with.
In addition, the group’s community newspapers such as Metroburger and People’s Post, should reflect the views of the community and not the racist ideology and apartheid editorials of the past.
PUT AN END TO PREJUDICE IN PUBLISHING
STOP MEDIA APARTHEID
NO TO RACIST AND SEXIST “BAASKAP” IN THE WORKPLACE
