Asking South Africans …
The Restitution Foundation’s “National Dialogue” has been rather overtaken by the passionate response to Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s suggestions for a “wealth tax”! The resulting debate illustrates so clearly that finding a way live together in South Africa is painful and contested. Consequently the Restitution Foundation has invited South Africans to participate in a virtual discussion, linked with its ongoing web based National Dialogue, on The role of restitution in South Africa
Have a look at these links and you’ll find responses from theologians, transitional justice experts, academics….and South Africans.
- People involved in the Worcester project
- We asked Theologians What is the theological basis for restitution in our context?
- Business people
- NGO Folks
- Transitional Justice experts
- And South Africans…
We would value your own opinion in a paragraph or three, or if you would like to comment on any of the pieces, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Or join the social movement by Liking The Restitution Foundation Facebook page.
The intention of the National Dialogue is to get South Africans talking. We need to talk with each other about how we deal with the great inequalities that have been created through our past and our present. We need to think about whether there is a need for restitution or redress to contribute to transition, reconciliation or the achievement of greater social equality. The Foundation is inviting South Africans from all walks of life to join the debate.
