I am Lauren Evanthia, wife and mother of 4, with 6 years experience in politics. I am passionate about fixing up our government by defining its proper role, advocating for democracy and standing up for liberty.
I believe in the potential South Africa has to become a nation among nations, to rise to its position of one of the most powerful - and freest - countries in the world. We have all the resources, land, climate and people to be the most self-reliant, resilient country. Our people do not have to suffer. With over 55% of South Africans in poverty, and all the social ills that go with it, I believe that a new approach to governance that is built upon principles of liberty can help people create a dignified life for themselves. Once we install a political system that empowers people instead of enriching politicians, South Africa will become a liberated nation and finally we can be proud of who we are and live prosperous lives. Although I believe that most of the social ills that exist today are not the responsibility of government to fix, the government is also the number one biggest stumbling block preventing people from improving their lives, whatever their starting point may be. Thus a new approach to governance is needed and I want to drive that vision, through the OHM because I believe it is in the best interests of all South Africans - and the only way to ensure freedom from globalist agendas trying to take away our liberty.
I have created a vehicle, in the form of a political party to achieve this vision. The Organic Humanity Movement has been created to perfect South Africa's democracy through:
1. Establishing the proper role of governance based on the principles of liberty and freedom
2. Changing the electoral system such as directly electing our public representatives including the President of SA among many other changes.
3. Applying OHM's principles to all of South Africa's laws and policies. These principles are liberty, protection of life, respect for the Earth, self-reliance, continuous progress and national unity. Read more about our principles here: https://www.organichumanitymovement.org/principles.html
Our aim is to become the ruling party by 2029 (Earlier if the people are ready to catch the vision). I believe that with the correct strategy in place it is easily achievable. 2030 is when the UN-influenced National Development Plan fully takes effect, such as urbanization and control of the citizens movement. That is why the 2nd national election from now is so important to me. Anything that will have been put in place to take away our freedom, we will be able to remove.
The end result will be a country that does not hold its citizens back from opportunities to grow and progress, both individually and as a nation.
In order for The Organic Humanity Movement to operate, function and contest elections, it needs ongoing funds.
Our philosophy has always been to raise small amounts of money from lots of individuals so that it is a truly people funded party.
The following table will outline operating costs for one year and campaign costs for the Local Government Elections taking place in 2021. We will need the funds for the elections by January 2021 in order to start campaigning.
All amounts indicated are based on competitive quotes I have received. I have worked hard to source the most affordable prices at an acceptable quality. I am open to different supplier suggestions if anyone has recommendations.

Currently all political parties represented in government receive government funding from tax-payers money. The amount they get is dependent on how many seats they have, so the largest party gets the most money and thus has the best opportunity to get the most votes.
In the private sector, its often not the best company that gets the most customers but rather the best marketed company. I feel the same principle applies to party-funding, making it almost impossible for new parties to make any impact against the political equivalent of corporate giants. Party funding is another practice in our democracy that I believe needs to come to an end. Its a complete waste of tax-payers money. If a party cannot raise its funds from the people, it doesn't deserve any political power.
I am therefore asking you to put your faith and trust in me, and in The Organic Humanity Movement. I am willing to speak to anyone who has questions about our mission which we call #LiberateSA. I know that people are very suspicious of anyone or anything relating to politics, and understandably so. However I learnt early on that it is impossible to achieve this vision without political involvement.
Even the smallest donation will make a difference. Thank you for putting your trust in me and The Organic Humanity Movement.
