SABC Position Paper Workshop
The “Save our SABC: Reclaiming our Public Broadcaster” Coalition, representing key trade unions, NGOs, CBOs and independent producer organisations has been working hard to address the crises at the public broadcaster, the SABC. The Coalition has focused its attentions, among a number of issues, on the Broadcasting Amendment Bill. Throughout our campaigns around the Bill the Coalition has called for the launching of a public, consultative Green / White Paper process leading to the promulgation of a new SABC Act. The Coalition aims to be as prepared as possible to participate in this and related government processes.
The above workshop is key activity in the Coalition’s preparations. The workshop aims to analyse a number of important issues including: the SABC’s governance structures, funding, legal structure, the impact of digital migration and so forth.
