Gender based violence is crippling the country. Some have started a petition to declare South Africa a state of emergency. 

But do people really know what is a state of emergency? Is that what we need? Will it solve our problems? A state of emergency may give the president powers to act outside of the law. But is that what you want. People want the government to prioritise gender based violence as a problem. That is understandable, but do we want to give the government powers to dictate the country during this "state of emergency"?

If you have no idea what a state of emergency is but signed a petition supporting it then please sign here and share the petition to your friends.
