Apartheid petty and grand and old and new is evil
by Ayanda Kota
The Unemployed People’s Movement (UPM) was formed in August 2009 to respond to the crisis of unemployment and the commodification of essential services in a society dominated by corruption and greed. As Steve Biko said we blacks are tired of standing at the touchlines to witness a game that we should be playing. We want to do things for ourselves and all by ourselves. This is a realisation that we are protagonists of our lives and nobody will free us but ourselves, we – the unemployed - will have to be our own liberators.
