Activists Picket Against ‘Censorship’ at SABC

Activists and journalists picket outside the SABC offices against perceived censorship by the public broadcaster

About 50 activists and journalists picketed outside the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) offices in Auckland Park offices in Johannesburg against perceived censorship by the public broadcaster.

The picket follows the sudden resignation of acting chief executive officer of SABC, Jimi Matthews, citing a ‘corrosive’ atmosphere at the broadcaster.

While this was supposed to be a silent picket‚ the journalists chanted a number of slogans‚ including ‘The SABC belongs to the people’‚ ‘Journalism is not a crime’‚ ‘No to censorship’‚ ‘SABC belongs to all of us’‚ ‘Reinstate them’‚ ‘We support our colleagues’ and ‘Show us everything’.
