Malungisa Youth Development (MYD) as part of rural community’s has taped – in, to sense – in peoples views about COP17. Actually it a global community concern but it is being addressed in a dictatorship approach through limitations. General people didn’t got a space to contribute in decision making process since its framed in political manner. That raise some questions : who represent who and how? As MYD we are not representing concerns but we are part of the concerns, our contribution since we produce media with the aim of getting another side of the story based on what is taking place. Through Indymedia/ IMC-Africa we network by media reports by covering neither or less the uncovered.


We rather not to buy it!!! Yes they was 3days Conference Of the Youth (COY ), it was held at South Africa – Durban at UKZN Howard collage from 25-27 Nov. It was a United Nations programme where we as South African youth were being welcomed by European reprentatives/ youth, in our own African soil . One of the youth organs around Durban did tried to get a space in order to share views on behalf of Durban youth/ rural to urban movement, but it was declined due to different approach in society issues since its UN concept. Most of the SA young people who were there was those from Government structures/ affiliate, your NYDA, ANC Youth league, uncategorized Gov. representatives’. This was just a concept of installing/investing climate propaganda for future, discuss issues affecting people without people.
