Since 2013 the Right2Know Campaign has produced an annual calendar celebrating the people and organisations that have made an important contribution to advancing the right to know.
Please help us identify the people and organisations that have championed the right to know in 2016:
- Who has fought for and won access to information vital to advancing important socio-economic battles?
- Who has confronted the securitisation of the state or championed the right to protest?
- Who are the whistleblowers who, at personal risk, have brought important information to the public’s attention?
- Who are the courageous investigative journalists and media producers that have broken important stories or contributed significantly to media diversity in SA?
Now is not the time to be modest or self effacing. Now is the time to claim our victories and hold up examples of comrades and friends that can inspire others to stand for the right to know.
Please nominate your champion/s of the right to know by completing this form or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with (1) your name and contacts, (2) the name/contacts of the person/s or organisation/s you want to nominate, and (3) a sentence or two about why you think the Person/Organisation is a champion of the right to know in 2015.
Please send in nominations before Monday 10 October 2016.
