Years fighting
for freedom

With their monthly donations of R80-R150, the Friends of the IRR allow us to oppose bad ideas, policies, and decisions, and put forward real solutions.

The decisions of those in power directly impact the lives of all South Africans.

Government decisions can grow opportunity or smother it. They can create wealth or destroy it. They can expand freedom or erode it.

The IRR holds those in power accountable. We fight against bad decisions. We promote solutions that make life in South Africa better for all.

Fight load-shedding, Stop BEE at Eskom

ANC social engineering at Eskom must be replaced by electrical engineering, plain and simple.


Stop new nationwide Race Quotas

About the IRR

We conduct research, promote policy solutions, and fight for freedom, equality of opportunity, and the rights of every individual.

We stand for classical liberalism - an effective way to defeat poverty and tyranny through a system of limited government, a market economy, private enterprise, freedom of speech, individual liberty, property rights, and the rule of law.
