As South Africa's Minister of Finance, Nhlanhla Nene, readies to address Parliament with his Budget Speech, hundreds are on the streets in Cape Town today, marching to Parliament, demanding a budget that puts the "people's needs" first.

The march, organised by the United Front, had several key messages, such as "People Before Profits", and calls for a "National Strategic Plan to End Gender-Based Violence" in South Africa.

Sonke and many of our partners (The GBV NSP Campaign Partners) are calling on President Zuma to immediately commit the money and political will to the development of a comprehensive national strategic plan to address gender-based violence that will strengthen both prevention and response.
