Feeling the spirit

Salt River and Woodstock was abuzz yesterday as many people in South Africa took to the street to blow their vuvuzelas.

Bush Radio shares some of the concerns around the impact of the World Cup on the country, especially in the areas of human trafficking, moving of the homeless, risks to children because of the long holiday, and sex work, etc.

We addressed some of these issues directly with FIFA‘s Jerome Valcke and the Local Organising Committee’s Danny Jordaan when they visited the station and have continued to interact directly with other NGOs and social movements on-air through our programmes (eg Sakhisizwe).

However, yesterday was a celebration and we couldn’t help catching the spirit, and like we say at Bush Radio: “Instead of cursing the darkness, light a candle!”. Let’s celebrate what we can and work on what we must.

Catch Everyday People broadcasting live from the Swartklip Fanjol tomorrow from 15h00 Р19h00.
