SAUV (South African United Voices) formally ‘Smokers United’ (we were formed by the initial smokers ban and have been ‘at it’ ever since. SAUV is primarily a socio/political group and we have allegiances with Dear SA, Daily Friend, LFN and others.
We are ‘all over the show’ individually and need a collective strategy. We are firm believers in all strategies are great and it takes a thousand blows to sink the Leviathan. Ours is boycott. Hold Business SA accountable for their enforcement of these Mandates. Because our problems aren’t the politicians … it’s the bankers and large corporations. We need to shift the attitude of ‘consumerism’. We need to make people understand that every time they support a franchise such as Mc Donald’s or Amazon, we are given them more power over us. The customer is King and they (big corporate) have forgotten that.
