CAPE TOWN - The Right 2 Know Campaign has taken to the streets of Cape Town, calling for more affordable internet.

The march forms part of the organisation's National Day of Action for the right to communicate.

The demonstration is aimed at improving internet access for the poor.

The campaign's John Haffner says many people don't have access to internet or social media limiting their ability to be vocal about their opinions.

Haffner says this adversely affects the type of news being broadcast and published.

"So there's too much concentration within the media and very limited access for people to have a voice in their media and have a media that reflects their issues and opinions.

"So we want broader media freedom so people can feel as if the media is representative of who they are and their interests."
