Sign the petition: We pledge to Beat-Day-Zero



We the people of South Africa, with solidarity sourced across the globe, hereby pledge to Beat-Day-Zero.
We rise to acknowledge that South Africa, the City of Cape Town in particular, is drifting towards a major water crisis. Three consecutive years of drought weather conditions have left the city’s water reservoirs almost empty leading to the spectre of

Day Zero, the day when most water taps in the city will run dry.
Fear is setting in and emotions are soaring. Narrow minded political posturing is not helping the situation. A blame game has come to rule while the crisis escalates further. If not properly managed, the situation can become catastrophic. That’s more so for the most vulnerable sections of society.

We hereby take a stand to work together towards reversing the unfolding water crisis in Cape Town and beyond –bearing in mind that the Eastern Cape and Northern Cape provinces are fast descending into a crisis point as well. And being cognisant of the fact that the whole of South Africa; large parts of the southern African region in fact, are locked onto the same dry path.

Our pledge comes with two angles:
We will do everything in our powers to push back Day Zero as far as possible and into permanent oblivion if nature allows. And if Day Zero comes, we will work together to ensure that its effects are minimalised. We will work in a manner that sets a sustainable precedent for all of humanity.
We rise with the knowledge and confidence, informed by history, that by working together we will triumph.
