Every week we reach hundreds of thousands of people through placing arguments in the media in support of the principles we stand for. No other advocacy group in the country does as much as we do to promote support for policies that defend your right, and that of your community, to make decisions about your own life free from counter-productive government interference.

The race-obsessives vs. the SA middle-ground - Politicsweb

16 June 2019 - Could it be that the priorities of middle-class elites are at odds with those of ordinary people?

Imminent race war? - Saturday Star

The depth of the DA’s problems - Businesslive
