NO TO MEN’S MONTH PETITION 

Enough is Enough! Pietermaritzburg Agency for Community Social Action (PACSA) is appalled and deeply concerned by the increase in Gender-Based Violence incidents in our country.

We see the tears and feel the pain of those affected and ask, what have our societies become? What have men become?

Every year, every month, every day and every eight minutes a woman is raped and killed by a man who says he loves her. 

What has become of us as a nation?  You kill a woman you kill the nation. Enough is enough, the split of the blood of woman and children must come to an end. We call upon men to be in solidarity and to declare femicide as a state of emergency and take action. We cannot fold our hands when there are so many injustices happening before our eyes by the male gender, denying women air to breathe by perpetrators who have lost humanity. 

Last year the state of GBV was bad and this year it has become worse. One of the most devastating cases was of Uyinene Mrwetyana, this year it is Tshegofatso Pule, the list continues.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu, once said, “if you are neutral in situations of injustices, you have chosen the side of the oppressors”. The month of July in South Africa is normally celebrated as "Men’s Month" and therefore as PACSA, we refuse the celebration of July as Men’s Month while we continue to experience high levels of femicide increasing in our country. 

Please stand in solidarity with us in the fight against the killing of womxn in our communities by signing this petition to;

Rejection of the celebration and acknowledgement of Men’s Month in July 2020 and the future
Life sentence for convicted sexual offenders 
No bail for sexual offenders especially the repeating offenders
Criminal cases to parents and traditional leaders who accepts livestock from sexual offenders.
