FLEAT South Africa:

All hands on deck at David Profit Street Bonteheuwel PEACE GARDENS. Dutch Television are coming tomorrow, God Willing, to film our Peace Gardens for a documentary on Fynbos, the birds and insects it attracts to Bonteheuwel and most important, the PEACE and TRANQUILITY it brings to a community that is sadly branded as "kill me quick" "Very Dangerous" "Red/Danger Zone"... We choose to focus on positive things. #CHANGEBEGINSWITHME

The Durban Amnesty International group are screening Sisters of the Wilderness at 18.00 on Monday 26 August in the large SunCoast cinema.

We intend to invite the 5 young women, who feature in the film to attend. I also plan to invite the other KZN FLEAT guys to come... they all live in the Midlands.

I feel so good this far.
