We are asking people to use yellow fabric or yellow ribbons to express their rejection of xenophobia in Pietermaritzburg. This is part of a campaign to show that the majority of people in this city are appalled by the current threats and violence against foreign nationals living in our city. As the Freedom Charter says: South Africa belongs to all who live in it.
The colour yellow is associated with friendship, happiness and hope; which is what we wish for our city.
Get creative in your neighbourhoods, in the streets, in public spaces and parks, and in your schools and work places – wrap everything you can in yellow!
Please take photos and distribute.
Earlier today, CLP wrapped yellow material around trees and put up posters in Burger Street, Pietermaritzburg. Click here for more pictures.
