The first 7 days of our outside broadcast marathon for 16 Day of Activism is complete but it wasn’t without hitches. First our only outside broadcast laptop crashed – a day before our campaign started – but thanks to CapeTown Tweeple who retweeted our call for help, Professor Johannes Cronje from CPUT donated his laptop.
Then one of our venues in Hanover Park had no functioning telephone line but the Auntie across the road stepped in and let us use her telephone line!
Unfortunately, our appeals and proposals to national, local government and corporates for support have gone unheeded.
