Every person in South Africa should support this petition. Our country, one of the most vibrant and beautiful in the world, has become notorious for rape, murder and police brutality, instead of being known as a country with breathtaking scenery, a wonderful diversity of warm people and many natural resources.

The South African Government
We, the citizens of South Africa, rich, poor, of all races, religions and beliefs, are tired of living in fear of violence, whether from our neighbours, random criminals or law enforcers. We want to take a stand now and say "enough is enough". We want to be able to go out at night without fear of being high-jacked, we want to walk on our beautiful beaches without fear of being mugged and raped. We want South Africa to become a place where people live together in peace and harmony and where everyone respects the life, possessions and most importantly the dignity of other citizens of our country. We are tired of living in fear and we want our country back.
