In July 2023, My Vote Counts convened 55 representatives of social movements, trade union federations and NGO’s. The convening was rooted in people’s struggles for water, electricity, land and housing, jobs, education and sanitation. These struggles were linked to the state of democracy, as we move towards the 2024 general elections, which will be our most consequential elections since 1994. This formed the basis of the 3-day convening held in Franshoek, Western Cape in July 2023. The participants included representatives from Abahlali baseMjondolo, South African Federation of Trade Unions (SAFTU), Equal Education, Mining Affected Communities United in Action, National Youth Coalition, and others.
