we hereby join the Cultural Boycott: MTN Blackout 20 Days Campaign
Our site http://strike 2012.org will be blacked out for 20 days and show only info of the 20 Day Campaign
By forfeiting her livelihood and following in the foot steps of the conscientised South African top musicians, Lira's sacrifice and others must not be in vain and thus we and the people we associate with, in South Africa and Swaziland, have taken the decision to fofeit the luxury of receiving and making MTN calls, sms and so forth as from the 10th May untill after the Bush Fire Festival - 30th May 2012.
All in all, the reality is that the MTN Blackout 20 Days Campaign is solely opposed to MTN's promotion and glorification of the suppression of the right to self determination, freedom of association, freedom of expression and democracy by virtue of sponsoring the Bushfire Festival and blatantly practicing unfair competition against the state owned post and telecommunication enterprise in Swaziland. As consumers, we refuse to be abused whereby our scarce resources subsidize the sustenance of Africa's last absolute monarch.

Despite the business community citing that the move by King Mswati III to purchase a 10 percent shareholding in mobile company, Swazi MTN was a 'bad business decision,' the deal went through.
The South African-based mobile telecommunications group, MTN (confirmed) that King Mswati III bought a six percent interest in Swazi MTN through the Swaziland Posts and Telecommunications’ (SPTC), which sold some of its shares (donated to the monarchy!).
However, according to South Africa’s Mail and Guardian, MTN said the shares were made available by SPTC, which is entitled under the terms of a joint venture agreement to dispose of up to 21% of its shares free of any pre-emptive rights. The agreement is between the SPTC, MTN International, Swazi Empowerment Limited and MTN Swaziland.
STAND UP & BE COUNTED TIME FOR LIP SERVICE IS OVER
