As we work towards social connectedness and building

This preview shows page 97 - 101 out of 424 pages.

As we work towards social connectedness and building an intersectional society, we must include the representation of young women and gender non-conforming bodies in the structures that will lead these processes and institutions. However, we must also acknowledge, Mr President, that the scourge of patriarchy won’t be solved by solely increasing the representation of women in an oppressive system but rather the dismantling and breaking down of any institution and societal construct that entrenches patriarchy. To quote American Iranian activist Hoda Katebi: “a seat at the table does not mean you are off the menu”. Hon Fikile Masiko, a Whip deployed by the governing party to the Portfolio Committee on Women, Youth and Persons with Disabilities, together let us work to whip patriarchy out of this society. Let us whip it, whip it real good.

UNREVISED HANSARD JOINT SITTING TUESDAY, 25 JUNE 2019 Page: 98 Hon Lamola, our Constitution is considered a world-leading document; we must conceptualize and design a world-leading response to gender-based violence. As per our manifesto, we must capacitate and equip the police and the court system to support survivors of gender-based violence and sexual assault. Mr President, as we increase the visibility of police we must ensure that our people do not live in fear of our police nor are they triggered by police. Our police must not assimilate the intolerance of the apartheid police who when overseeing protests nor must they regurgitate sexual harassment towards victims entering police stations. Hon Cele appreciating the contribution to youth employment through training 5000 young people into the police; we must ensure that we harness a blooming police force whose actions will resonate with a democratic South Africa through programmes like Conflict Negotiation, Mediation and Resolution Training and Rehabilitation programmes.

UNREVISED HANSARD JOINT SITTING TUESDAY, 25 JUNE 2019 Page: 99 Core to the student protests of 2015-16 was nation-building. Our generation reminded society that you cannot build a nation whilst others are left behind academically and economically. Out of that came great strides in the sector of higher education, however, consequence of our call for free quality and decolonized education, talented young South Africans like Kanya Cekeshe find themselves behind bars; others charged, expelled, suspended, emotionally scarred and politically despondent. Comrade President, the unconditional release of Kanya and all others must be prioritized by your administration. We call for your presidential pardon. Comrade President, South Africa being one of the greatest leaders of the african continent, we endorse your call for a world-class visa regime, best academic minds on the continent must collaborate with our academics and universities and all our institutions. Our children must go to great Kingdoms of Mali and Ghana to learn of our majestic and glorious history and young African learners must come here to learn our history.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
