The Jacobin Option?I think SA is sliding downhill very fast.
ZILLE AND ZIKALALAThe attached SABC "Zille" news item reveals how Zikalala's SABC reports a major news story.If David Cameron (leader of the Conservatives) was arrested in The UK would The BBC website give the story such minimal coverage? This report really is indicative of a public broadcaster that has lost its way:SABC NEWS WEBSITEZille to appear in court tomorrowPolice say Zille was arrested following an illegal gatheringSeptember 10, 2007, 05:45The Cape Town Mayor and Democratic Alliance (DA) leader, Helen Zille, will appear in the Mitchell's Plain Magistrates Court tomorrow. Police say Zille was earlier arrested following an illegal gathering. She was then released on a warning at the Mitchells Plain police station on the Cape Flats. Zille faces a charge of violating the Gatherings Act. Zille says she was taking part in a march against drug lords on the Cape Flats. She says police gave them three minutes to disperse, and then started arresting women and children, including her.
Perhaps this is the beginning of South Africa's own great totalitarian leap forward. The last few weeks have really been bad.
