Yesterday a handful of the campaign's members gathered outside the studio protesting against what it calls the public broadcaster's self censorship.

SABC COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng put a ban on protest footage on the SABC last month. 

KZN Spokesperson for the campaign, Thabane Miya says they will bring the station to a standstill.

These protestors described their frustrations to Newswatch yesterday.

''We as South Africans we are demanding truth. We cannot stand watching television and being given half truth. We are a country that believes in democracy,'' said one protestor. 

''Authentic news is what we are demanding as a country. This is not a Hlaudi republic, it is the Republic of South Africa,'' another fuming protestor said.
