Media release by Cape Independence Movement 25 February 2011

The Cape Independence Movement notes with concern the implications of this
proposed amendment. In terms of this amendment, in future an organisation will be
assessed to be compliant with the Employment Equity Act only if their staff reflect
the national demographics of the economically active population and that regional
variations in demographics will no longer be taken into account. This means that in
order to meet the new requirements, millions of economically active people will have
to be relocated from the provinces in which they currently work to other provinces. In
addition other family members will also have to relocate.
