South Africa: a protest by the Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) against gender violence.
The song is titled Molo TAC (greetings TAC), and MFS refers to Medicins Sans Frontieres (Doctors without borders).
These non-profit organizations were the first to challenge the big pharma cabal and their high profits, as well as offering free treatment from pilot
programs in impoverished areas.
During the Mbeki era they also challenged and won court cases against AIDS denialist con-artists, especially when they made false claims that the TAC
was funded by big pharma, or against conmen who killed people by convincing them that ARVs were poisonous and put them on "vitamins", which later
turned out to contain illegal single dosages of an ARV, as well as other useless or questionable ingredients.
TAC march in Cape Town, 2006:
Often the music would rework old anti-apartheid songs.
Some history of the TAC, with more music.
Treatment Action Campaign: The first five years - Part 3:
State violence is eventually evident.
This shows that when state power adopts conspiracy theories on medicine, this can also be very dangerous.
