Several organisations have teamed up to submit an urgent application to the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa to force the SABC to immediately revoke its controversial decision to not broadcast footage of the destruction of property during protests.

Media Monitoring Africa, the SOS Coalition – a pressure group campaigning for an independent public broadcaster – and the Freedom of Expression Institute were preparing to submit the urgent complaint to Icasa’s Complaints Compliance Committee in Johannesburg later today.
