our concerns
OUR CONCERNS
  • Access to SAWS Website already restricted!
  • Informing our colleagues of adverse weather may now become illegal!
  • Our sources are impeccable!
  • Our conduct is professional!
  • Being denied the right to support our community would be a tragedy!
  • Being denied the right to dissect international data would be a disaster.
conclusion
CONCLUSION
  • Access denial, discussion and open publication can breed more miss-information.
  • Disallowing other sources and enthusiasts is counter productive!
  • Creating a monopoly is not in the interest of our country!
  • Restricting freedom of information – disastrous!
  • Sharing information would be more productive!
  • 7 Days ago – Limpopo flooding – amateur information more accurate than SAWS – website restriction!
