Webinar | Budget Justice Coalition – Imali Yesizwe

21st Oct 2020 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

On Wednesday 21 October 2020, the Budget Justice Coalition (BJC) will table_ Imali Yesizwe_ (Our Nation’s Money) – an alternative, people’s budget based on human rights.

BJC anticipates that the Medium Term Budget Policy Statement (MTBPS), now due to be tabled by Finance Minister Tito Mboweni on 28 October 2020, will accelerate the austerity of recent years by cutting funding to health, education, social development, local government and housing, and critical institutions such as SARS, StatsSA and the NPA, in a misguided attempt to stabilise public debt.

BJC believes this is the wrong priority and will do more harm than good. The Coalition will outline its vision for an alternative budget that is progressive, gender-sensitive, environmentally sustainable and categorical in its prioritisation of the realisation of human rights.
