The Rebuttal worked closely with several members of the SA Deaf Community to put this article together. We felt the article offered a balanced view of the issues that were at hand in regard the sale of ‘262’. If there were any perceived inaccuracies these pages are available to put alternative arguments or information.
We were careful to point out that we realised it was a difficult decision and that several strategies have been tried in the past with limited success. The only request was that the future of the SA Deaf community be paramount in any decision.
It has come to our attention that some people that helped us put this article together now fear victimization. This is totally unacceptable and we hope that it does not occur.
We invite the management of Deaf Can Do to use these pages to set the record straight. Transparency will go a long way.
We repeat, victimization or fear of it is unacceptable.
We thank the members of the SA Deaf Community who were brave enough and concerned enough to want to speak out. Stand proud!
