AfriForum and Solidarity intensify opposition to BELA Bill

# AfriForum, Solidarity, and the Solidarity Support Centre for Schools have intensified their pressure on the government regarding the Basic Education Laws Amendment Bill with a petition to president Cyril Ramaphosa. The petition demands that Ramaphosa not approve the bill and return it to the National Assembly. Solidarity’s deputy chief executive for legal matters, Anton van der Bijl, warns that the bill’s amendments threaten single-medium Afrikaans schools’ survival and could lead to litigation if signed.
