CRAIG LOCK’S (AND MARIE’S) LETTERS TO NEWSPAPERS

“STIRRERS!”

REPORTING ON THE UNREST IS A TRUE REFLECTION OF SA.

From Marie and Craig Lock  (Wellington,  New Zealand):

We have recently arrived in New Zealand from Cape Town and would like to congratulate your brave journalists for unbiased coverage of the “unrest”  in the face of many obstacles. 

We have seen much coverage of the current unrest in South Africa on TV, both here and in Australia, and believe it to be unbiased and factual, showing all points of view.  We have just seen some rather horrifying scenes of the latest clashes at Crossroads.

Albert Einstein famously said, “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”
