Activists March to Highlight HIV/AIDS Plight

Activists in Mpumalanga partake in a silent march with the aim of drawing attention to HIV/AIDS related issues

A group of activists have staged a silent march at the country's main World AIDS Day event in Piet Retief, Mpumalanga.
 
Made up of representatives from a number of human rights organisations, the group marched with an aim to draw attention to the issues facing people living with HIV/AIDS. 
 
"The intention is not to disrupt the event, but to make sure that people remember that the AIDS epidemic is still going on. We want to highlight the fact that there are still people who are dying without treatment. So, we want to make sure that World AIDS Day focuses on real issues, that it does not become a political event with no significance for the people who live with HIV," explains AIDS activist, Mark Heywood.
