Last year I wrote a very heated and controversial post about an anti-crime march that was held in London. I was a bit confused about the action and that people abroad should come home and fight for their country.
This year on December 6th 2008 South Africans living in London will gather to march for their right to vote. This is something that I wholeheartedly support. I am extremely impressed by the initiative and if I was there, I would march too. Why the hell shouldn’t Saffas abroad be allowed to vote if they intend on returning to SA?

If you have family living abroad and are close to the march then get them there and support the cause. Why? Because it’s your right to vote.
