Party raises R200k online

Johannesburg - The Ubuntu Party has managed to raise the necessary deposit of R200 000 to participate in the South African elections on 7 May, the party said in a statement.

According to the party this is a historic moment for them, because their "entry into the political arena was paid for by the people through a global Internet crowd-funding campaign".

The party made use a campaign on the funding website Indiegogo that allows people to raise money from across the globe.

The party already raised approximately R330 000 using this platform.

The core strategy of the party is "for the people, by the people". Based on these principles the party aims to do the following:

• Restructure the entire banking system to serve the people and not enslave the people;

• Create a PEOPLE's BANK that creates money for the people by the people, tax-free and interest-free, and stop the financial enslavement of our people by the privately owned Reserve Bank;

• This will immediately free the people of South Africa from debt slavery - the same way that Abraham Lincoln did with his Greenback, and JFK did with his United States Note in 1963, which replaced the Federal Reserve Note;

• For this, UBUNTU has been joined by Stephen Goodson, a former director and shareholder of the SARB, with insider knowledge of how the banking institutions have exploited the people and continue to control our government at every level;

• Let our scientists and inventors deliver a renewable source of Free Energy for every South African;

• Support our farmers on every level to escape the grips of Monsanto and grow organic food gardens planted across the nation to ensure that no South African ever goes hungry again;

• Decentralise the government so that people can govern themselves in their own communities - taking care of their own needs immediately, supported by the new People's Bank;

• Restructure the legal system to be written by the people for the people, unlike the unjust legal system we face in our courts, which hold the rights of corporations above those of living breathing human beings.
