SECTION27 welcomes the Western Cape High Court’s decision to block plans by government to proceed with the unlawful and unconstitutional nuclear deal.

We specifically pay tribute to Earthlife Africa and the Southern African Communities’ Environment Institute for their tireless work, advocacy and activism. We always knew that should this deal – which our country cannot afford –  be signed, generations would be paying off this massive debt. The court ruling is another significant blow against corruption.

Civil society organizations are one of the final hurdles against further state capture and we urge foundations, donors and South Africans to do all they can to support these entities.
