Propoganda reporting about e-toll protest

27 January 2014, 11:05

For those of you who don't know, don't have Facebook or don't have access to the Internet, there was a huge protest against e-tolls on Saturday.  Unfortunately government controlled media, including News24, Rapport, Beeld, SABC etc. has reported little on this protest involving "hundreds" of people.

There were more than 2000 bikes protesting e-tolls and more than 2500 motorists. The SABC reported this as "hundreds" , how can 5000 - 6000 people, holding a reported 25000 more cars on the highways of Gauteng be reported as "hundreds"?  I am smelling Nazi propaganda in our media and state, suppressing the feelings of the masses, to instill fear of showing support against e-tolls!

While I do not support the use of "terror" tactics against the staff of Sanral, these three disruptions in one week at the office of Sanral shows the public's feeling towards e-tolls.  Why are the voices of the people being ignored?  Black, white, pink, blue and red are all against e-tolls, for the first time in our democracy, we as a nation are standing together and the state controlled media is not even reporting accurately about the protest.

The worst part is the protection of information act is not yet passed into law and already the state is forcing the media to report faulty and inaccurate information about the protest against e-toll.

The state and Sanral (or scumral as they are now being renamed) are trying to make us fear them, fear showing our support against e-tolls and force us to pay them for another Nkandla! The send us e-mails and smses talking about "violations" even before we receive any invoices!  They are bullies and we know how to deal with bullies. You stand up to them, you fight back and now the SABC is not even reporting our standing up to the bullies of sanral.

If you doubt the numbers I have given you, or feel the bullies' pressure against you. Please follow this link and view it for yourself:

Please join me in writing to the Broadcasting Complaints Commission of South Africa (BCCSA) about the injustice that is being done while we still have the chance.

I will also write to the BCCSA if news24 does not post this article as it did when I posted about the legal ways of protesting e-tolls.
