March against e-tolls

The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (OUTA) calls on its supporters and the general public to participate in the march against e-tolls, as we join Cosatu and other organisations to send a strong message to Government that the e-toll scheme needs to be discontinued once and for all.

The march starts at Burgers Park in Thabo Sehume and Jacob Mare streets in Pretoria Central at 9am on Friday 2 November and heads to the Union Buildings.

"It is grossly unfair of Government to expect the users of 1% of SANRAL's road network to contribute 34% of SANRAL's revenue," says Wayne Duvenage, OUTA CEO.

"This is what we call a User Abuser scheme."

The civil disobedience campaign against e-tolls has now pushed the non-compliance rate to below 25%, making this electronic tolling scheme the most inefficient in the world, with more than 90% of revenue collected going to administration costs and virtually nothing toward the tarmac.

OUTA will be marching to the Union Buildings in solidarity with others who share our call on Government to end this grossly irrational and inefficient scheme.

OUTA is a proudly South African civil action organisation, that is purely crowd funded. Our work is supported by ordinary citizens who are passionate about holding government accountable and ensuring our taxes are used to the benefit of all South Africans.
