Saldanha Conference Report

2nd – 7th December 2004

“YSAWID kicked off with great cheer on 2 December 2004 as participants streamed into the enormous Saldana Navy Base transport warehouse which had been converted into a conference hall and breakaway rooms, loudly singing “Zanele Inyamazane: Mrs. Mbeki, our heroine “along with chants of “when you strike a woman, you strike a rock.” The African spirit was very much alive as a traditional healer, Latoya Makhene, called upon the ancestors to bless the proceedings.
