Cedric de la Harpe;

Born 1947, typical South African, first visit to Soweto in July 2004. Surprised by the love and warmth, the magic on the streets, but can’t understand why white South Africans are not on the streets 10 years into our New Democracy.

It takes nearly 3 years to discover that little has changed for our Township and Rural people, he works tirelessly since then to find a solution. Learning from the people on the streets everyday, not understanding how to translate what he is learning into value.

In August he decides that he needs to start the Economic Freedom Charter, he works at filling fifty posts on the website, he does not stop talking to the Informal Sector, Taxi Industry, Liquor traders, Tourism operators, Security Guards, social media.

The invitation to the SALTA workshop forces him to reflect once again, how does he translate his findings into value to others. The topic of the days discussions forces him to reflect on the word “Economy”, the three nodes that define economy, PRODUCTION, CONSUMPTION, PROFIT which is the transfer of wealth.

Land is a central part of Economy, ownership of the land differentiates whether we are a socialist economy or a capitalist economy. Following the 1913 Land Act, where does South Africa feature, 10% of the country become capitalist, 90% socialist, and at this stage the 90% become the informal sector.

How do we balance the 100 years of inequality, the target date for the answers to the final Economic Freedom Charter is set for the 19th June 2013, exactly 100 years into the 1913 Native Land Act, Act 27.

Let all South Africans discuss the challenges that this Act has caused, let all South Africans look to finding solutions that will balance the inequalities that this Land Act has caused.
