2mrw,The Global Day of Action March happens right here in Poison City. DurbanKnights are prompted to join this revolutionary mass movement, abiding by the principles of Ubuntu and Satyagraha.
HOW TO GET TO THE START OF THE MARCH
By Public Transport
if you are using public transport, you need to ask to get to Christian Center. Everyone knows where that is, and right across from Christian Center is the starting point.
If you are heading to the start from Glenwood, or the University or Florida Road, head towards Berea Road/ King Dinuzulu Road. PArking may be hard to find, as this is the transport hub for durban. My suggestion is to park somewhere else and bus/taxi in.
The City of Durban has been most unhelpful in negotiating the route, and finally, we have a route that has been approved.
The Starting Point is at the edge of the city. It is on the verge of the Warwick Triangle, right next to Christian Center and the DUT. The site is a grass patch with a statue of the King standing on what seems to be a dome. click here to check out the Street View
The March will head to the ICC, where a memorandum will be handed on, and finally the march will head to the beach and terminate.
Pausing at the entrance to the ICC at about 13:00, speakers will present short speeches, before statements gathered from participating groups and organisations are collectively handed over to UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres. Speakers will include Zwelinzima Vavi (representing labour), Ninmmo Bassy (representing Africa), Bishop Davies representing faith communities, Aluwani Nemukula representing youth and Constance Mogale representing women.
The END POINT
The end point is listed as corner of OR Tambo parade and KE Masinga. In old street names, this is the corner of Old Fort Road and Marine Parade. The GDA should terminate at 2pm
