started this petition to
Ster Kinekor, South Africa
Currently, South Africa has about 1.5 million people who identify as Deaf or Hard of Hearing - they are not able to go and enjoy a movie show because there are no subtitles for them to watch. When the DVDs come out, not all of them have subtitles and so the Deaf are missing out so much of the entertainment industry. This is auditory exclusion. 
Ster Kinekor does not have to have every single show with subtitles but we are suggesting that they can have at least one show of each movie per week containing subtitles to accommodate the Deaf community. We are also human and we deserve the opportunity to enjoy movies as much as those who can hear. If everyone can join in this petition it will mean a lot for accessibility to entertainment for this community, as well as benefitting the elderly who experience hearing loss.
