The Solidarity Movement (comprising Solidarity, AfriForum and Helping Hand) is planning a day of protest on crime on 19 May 2010. As many as 150,000 South Africans in hundreds of towns across South Africa will take part in the protest against crime.
The Solidarity Movement is also planning on involving other community organisations, community safety structures, trade unions and churches to support the day. Everyone in towns of all sizes, cities and farming communities are invited to participate in the campaign. In small places, as few as five people can participate, and in large cities, as many as 5 000.
The day will be marked by hundreds of memorandums being handed over to police stations across South Africa. The Solidarity Movement wants to hand over memorandums to as many of the 1,100 police stations in South Africa as possible. Foreign embassies and South Africans abroad will also be involved. In addition, well-known artists will perform at some of the gatherings.
The aim of the Solidarity Movement’s day of protest against crime on 19 May is twofold:
To protest against the levels of crime in South Africa.
To appeal to communities to create community safety structures.

Focused on two key topics regarding policing in the 21st century, this volume brings together highly insightful essays from world class scholars on developments in contemporary community policing in advanced industrial societies, and peacekeeping in weak and failing states. It emphasizes the increasing cultural and political context in which modern police work is performed, and offers perspectives that reach across the globe to include China, South Africa, Cambodia, Canada, and Australia, among others. It also looks at the increasing relationship between police organizations and other institutions, both local and international.
