From SLAPP to SSLOW

Stopping Strategic Litigation On Whistleblowers.

Given the plethora of whistleblower stories coming out, it seems that Mandy Wiener’s book ‘The Whistleblowers’ has opened a new genre of non-fiction literature. It has also revealed a rather empty niche begging to be filled by helping professionals and spiritual directors to provide psychosocial and spiritual support to this category of speakers of truth to power. Listen closely to their stories, and rather disconcerting truths about power emerge — truths that we must all embrace if South Africa is ever to weed out its systemic, endemic corruption at the roots.
