At a time when state captors call the tune in SA, democrats need to find a way to get our democracy back. We need a plan. That's what I propose on my blog.
Your support will enable me to continue writing in the run-up to the crucial ANC elections in December and for three months after that, while the effects of the elections play out. Ideally I'd like to continue until after the 2019 elections, but let's see first how it goes until March.
I need to be paid R3 000 per article (roughly the rate for junior newspaper commentators), and I propose 4 articles per month, or the equivalent in shorter or longer writings. That makes R12 000 pm for 8 months, R96 000 in all.
In addition to writing articles, I'll monitor comments on the blog, respond from time to time and keep the site in shape – all for mahala.
The content will be open to everyone – the purpose is after all to reach as many democrats as possible. However, donors also receive a monthly progress report on the state of the blog.
So support a blogger who will be your eyes and ears in this turbulent period of our history. A commentator beholden to no-one but you, South African democrats. No corporation, party, government, think-tank, NGO – this time it's you who pay the piper without the middleman.
Be part of this media revolution.
