One thought on “SA Secrecy Act

  1. I think the Media Tribunal is a bad idea. Although I agree that the media is sometimes biased and corrupt, it also the only gateway to international news. The anti-apartheid movements in South Africa would not have been successful if they had not received media coverage. The Defiance Campaign was the first campaign to receive a huge press coverage, and even international news coverage, and because this raised awareness of the situation under apartheid, it was a huge success. Having the government intervene into what the media can and can’t publish is a violation of freedom of expression, is delving in internal matters, and like the article implies, is something that was seen in the Communist Party.
