Earthlinks NPC started this petition to THE PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF SOUTH AFRICA and

We, the people of South Africa, in view of the impending humanitarian crisis now unfolding on account of far-reaching and protracted restrictions on social and economic activity, while we pledge our willingness to comply with any reasonable measures that sound and verifiable medical science requires for the health of our people, including the wearing of face masks, the voluntary isolation of the vulnerable and restrictions on mass gatherings, call upon the President of the Republic, the National Command Council established in terms of the DMA, and the Parliament of the Republic of South Africa, to immediately, without any further delay, re-open the entire economy of the Republic by removing all remaining constraints on the basic economic freedom of every citizen to fend for ourselves and our loved ones to the best of our abilities.

Believing, furthermore, that many of the regulations implemented in good faith have become counter-productive, in that people living in squalid, poor and confined conditions had no reasonable prospect of isolation, and that the desperation resulting on account of these measures are resulting in conglomerations of tens of thousands of people in queues for food, and other interactions that would not have happened in normal circumstances, plead that you reconsider whether the measures imposed stand any chance of lowering the risk of infection and achieving a national good that could possibly outweigh the awful and daily-accelerating adverse conditions that they are causing.

As for the risk of illness, "Let us fall into the hands of God, for His mercy is great; but let us not fall into the hands of men" (2 Samuel 24:14).

May God protect our people. Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika. Morena boloka setjhaba sa heso.

God seën Suid-Afrika. God bless South Africa.

Mudzimu fhatutshedza Afurika. Hosi katekisa Afrika.
