Honour Anene Booysen

To President Zuma:

Rape is a national crisis in South Africa, which the tragic murder of Anene Booysen has forced us to face up to. We call on you to make tackling the rape culture a national priority by launching a Commission of Inquiry into how to address it and funding a massive public education campaign in the national budget. It's time to address this tragedy and help heal South Africa.

When President Zuma delivers his State of the Nation address Thursday, there will be one name on everyone's mind: Anene.

The unspeakable brutality of Booysen's grizzly murder has utterly shocked the nation and the globe. Zuma and other leaders are speaking out, but that's not enough. This is his chance to start healing the wounds by launching a massive government campaign the likes of which the country has never seen. We can challenge the culture of sexual violence head-on by demanding right now that the government commit massive resources to a long-term programme to end this scourge of rape.

This war on our sisters, daughters, granddaughters -- on ourselves -- is South Africa's shame. Only if we all stand together and say 'enough is enough' can we take the Government's commitments and turn them into action. Let's do this to honour Anene and to make her tragedy the tipping point for change. We only have hours before the State of the Nation and days before the budget -- let's build the largest petition in South African history! Sign now and share this with everyone.
