The civil rights organisation, AfriForum’s campaign to inform the world of the crisis in South Africa and to gain international support for AfriForum’s projects will be continued in Europe. As part of this initiative, Ernst Roets, Head of Policy and Action at AfriForum, is on a liaison tour in Hungary this week (15-20 May).
A memorandum on the ongoing government crisis in South Africa, and ways in which the Hungarians can add value to a more sustainable solution will be handed over to important role players during this liaison tour. Meetings will be held with government representatives and other prominent figures to strengthen bonds on a cultural level. Roets will also address various meetings in Hungary on the situation in South Africa and conduct a series of media interviews.
Roets will also attend the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) which is scheduled to take place in Hungary this week, where several engagements with international roleplayers have already been arranged.
Roets explained that this liaison tour is a continuation of AfriForum’s #TheWorldMustKnow campaign which was launched in 2020 and that liaison tours to several other countries in Europe and the rest of the world are already being prepared.
“AfriForum has always placed a high premium on dialogue to find sustainable solutions to political problems. That is why AfriForum continues discussions in South Africa. However, AfriForum’s international campaign is just as important because it gives the world a context about South Africa and because countries like Hungary can make a meaningful contribution to a more sustainable solution for the people in South Africa. We are of the opinion that this will not only be in South Africa’s interest, but also in Hungary’s.”
