Dear Minister of Tourism - Please unlock leisure camping (and travel)

Leisure camping tourists/service providers and suppliers wholeheartedly support the measures our government has put in place to contain the spread of COVID19 in SA.

This is the innocent victim of prolific animal cruelty, at the hands of one woman. One of 100 dead and dying dogs found at her property in Clare Estate in April 2019.

Shut down Mclaren Circus, South Africa

Mclaren circus uses animals such as lions, snakes, tigers, camels and many more. These animals should not be used as entertainment and these animals deserve to have a better life and be free from that horrible business. The animals deserve to be respected and to be free to live in the wild instead of cages for peoples entertainment.  THIS NEEDS TO STOP.

Delay the return of children to school

Dear parents, grandparents, and guardians.   The Western Cape opened schools on the 1st June, other provinces on the 8th June, since the reopening of schools, many have had to close their doors due to infections... That with only grade 7's and 12's returning.  The department is now wanting to send the majority of grades back on the 6th July 2020. Yet our teachers and children are still contracting the virus. It appears that they have no regard for lives only the fact that education must continue

Reduce HPCSA fees for Optometrists

Optometrists pay the highest annual HPCSA (Health Professionals Council Of South Africa) fees as compared to other primary practitioners, such as Physiotherapists and Speech Therapists. This has been consistent for a number of years. Optometrists are asked to pay fees of R2470 (2020 rate), almost as much as General Practitioners (R2500 (2020 rate)) who have the title of 'Doctor' before their name, and are placed in a much higher income bracket as compared to Optometrists. Our aim, as Optometrist
