JOHANNESBURG – South African Communist Party (SACP) general secretary Blade Nzimande has called on party branches to intensify the fight against gender-based violence in their communities.
Nzimande was speaking at the communist party’s Red October campaign launch at the Johannesburg City Hall earlier.
The secretary general has urged branches to work with communities to deepen social mobility and ensure the effective prevention of violence.
The SACP leader added that this included bringing an end to discrimination against the Lesbian, Gay, Transgender and Intersex community.
He says this is crucial to building a socialist society.
“If left unchecked violence in our communities, in the economy and society at large, will plunge our nation into deeper crisis. The problem includes contact crimes, carjacking, murder and attempted murder.”
