1. 16 Days of Activism CD for Public Transport Launched

For Immediate Release - Taxis driving message home on gender violence

If you jump into a combi during the next couple of weeks in and around
Johannesburg, you may just be greeted with something a bit different from
the usual fare of thumping Kwaito and house beats. Launching 4 December at
Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality, Tjoon'in is an audio CD designed
specifically for playing in public transport as part of 16 Days of Activism.

Tjoon'in is an entertaining mix of music, feature reports, interviews,
testimonials from survivors of violence, and radio spots highlighting
various 16 Days themes, particularly domestic violence, xenophobia, human
trafficking, and men as partners. Produced partially during workshops with
transport stakeholders, local councilors and survivors of violence, the CD
features the energetic voices of YFM's Dineo Lusenga and Hlayisanani "TC"
Salani talking about everything from gun free zones to music and soccer, and
how these all fit in with 16 Days of Peace.

An innovative project by Gender Links in partnership with Ekurhuleni
Metropolitan Municipality and the Gauteng Women in Transport, produced with
assistance from CMFD Productions, the CD is being distributed free to taxis
and radio stations.
