Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to mail 10 000 empty chip packets back to their manufacturer to let them know their lack of creativity behind their use of plastic packaging is killing our oceans? Or stop an entire city to echo Madiba's words that like apartheid, poverty is a man-made construct that can be removed by the actions of human beings? Or create a hashtag that breaks the internet like #MeToo or #BlackLivesMatter?
If we want to improve the picture of our future, we have to do it ourselves and it's going to take a lot of good trouble and dedicated Warriors to make it happen! As we've said, there's a fight inside all of us. But not one of violence - one for what is right to see all South Africans thrive.
When we talk of change, of a Cape Town at its absolute best, we're often responded to with the word "impossible" by people who have given up and allowed the fire they were born with to be snuffed out. Muhammed Ali once said:
“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”
This activist group has accepted this dare! We are here to laugh in the face of 'impossible' and empower the vision of young Warriors around Cape Town, to fire up our youth and motivate them to kick the doors of inaction off their hinges, compelling the positive changes they seek. Look out for our quirky activations and guerilla marketing tactics around the city – we plan to positively disrupt, rewrite the rules of society and shake Capetonians of all races, ages and genders into building a greater city for all!
