A hot topic in South African politics at the moment is the African National Congress’s proposal of a Protection of Information Bill. If enforced, the Bill could have drastic consequences on South Africa’s press freedom. However the outcome of the debate surrounding the proposed Bill affects not just the media, but all South Africans. It challenges the very freedom that people like Steve Biko strived for. (Biko’s death in police custody would have been concealed by the apartheid government were it not for journalists standing up for the freedom of the press.) This ad gives a deeper insight into the debate, and offers readers of the Cape Times a broader perspective so that that they can know all about the proposed Bill and its ramifications on South Africa’s future.

This professional campaign titled 'Biko' was published in South Africa in July, 2016. It was created for the brand: Cape Times, by ad agency: Lowe. This Print medium campaign is related to the Media industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted over 12 years ago.
