Soweto, 1976.
"Know all about it..."
Yeah, right.
Unbelievable hypocracy.
Emotional excrement.

I like this ad. Old school. I like the papers' tagline. And lets the imagry tell a story.

This ad is rediculous. The Cape Times is attempting to profit off tragedy. Take a look at the september tenth 2001 and see how you feel then

I like this ad because it is about africa and this is our motherland, nuts to people who think otherwise.

Very good ad campaign overall… but unfortunately its writing cheques that the newspaper can't cash.
