April 21, 2014 -- Former leading member of the South African Communist 
Party (SACP) and former government minister *Ronnie Kasrils*, together 
with another former minister Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge, has launched the 
Vukani! Sidikwe! (Wake up! We are fed up!) Vote No! campaign. It calls 
on South Africans to "vote no" at the May 7, 2014, general election to 
the corruption and neoliberal economic policies of the African National 
Congress (ANC) and the right-wing oppostion, the Democratic Alliance 
(DA). Kasrils' call has provoked widespread debate on the South African 
left and condemnation from the SACP and the ANC.

Below, /Links International Journal of Socialist Renewal/ publishes an 
article by Kasrils on the reasons behind the campaign, as well as some 
commentary from the left.
