The Council for the Advancement of the Constitution launches in Johannesburg
The Council for the Advancement of the Constitution (CASAC), an organisation that promises to reawaken South Africans to the values of the Constitution, has launched in Johannesburg.

Led by businessman, Sipho Pityana, CASAC aims to mobilise South Africans against what it calls ‘conservative forces’ within both the government and society, in a bid to protect the Constitution and hold it up as the central goal that South African society aspires to.

According to Lawson Naidoo, a member of the interim steering committee, the organisation, which includes an advisory council of heavyweight academics and opinion-makers, will work with civil society and the government to educate people about their constitutional rights and how to mobilise and use those rights.
