Kenyan Mass PROTEST aganist high cost of living

Say no to VAT ACT 2013 (VAT ACT reloaded) Mass protest 15th October 2013

Despite pressure from member’s unga revolution and public during the month of May, June, and July to reject VAT bill, the members of parliament went ahead and passed it.

Therefore ,increasing the price of basic commodity such as unga, milk, bread, rice, sanitary towel, infant formula, fertilizer and seed placing majority of Kenyans who  currently live on less than a dollar a day at risk of hunger contrary to article 43 of the constitution that guarantee every Kenyan the right to food.

In that light members of public will stage a mass protest dubbed “Say no to VAT ACT 2013! (VAT ACT reloaded) “on 15th October 2013 in Nairobi where member will meet at Tom Mboya Monument at 10am before proceeding to parliament building to demand answers over the escalating prices of basic commodities especially food stuffs, introduction of price control bill  and calling for the full implementation of Article 43 of the constitution of Kenya

Members of unga revolution will be holding countrywide rallies, meeting and debate as part of mobilization.

We urge upon Kenyans to turn up in large numbers to show opposition to the act and exercise their Constitutional Rights as per Article 1, 3 & 37 of the Constitution of Kenya.

The Unga Revolution is a self motivated and non-violent movement of the people of Kenya aimed at realizing all the Economic and social Rights as enshrined in the Article 43 of the constitution of Kenya.

Currently the Unga Revolution is focusing on the Article 43 of the constitution ECONOMIC & SOCIAL RIGHTS-which state that all citizens have a right to Food, Housing, Healthcare, Education, Employment and Social Security.
