Video: David Kato vigil in Cape Town

In Cape Town, the vigil for murdered Ugandan activist David Kato was hosted by IGLHRC, Gender Dynamix, and AIDS Rights Alliance for Southern Africa (ARASA) and attended by over 70 people. They gathered in the IDASA building – a venerable institution from the days of the anti-apartheid struggle. It was a fitting place for a memorial for a hero from this struggle. The message yesterday was one of fierce determination to continue struggling for our rights.

The video is of the candle light vigil and attendees singing of a song from the anti-apartheid days – which was and still is often sung at funerals: Senzenina – “What have we done.”
