The South African Pagan Rights Alliance was designated as a religious organisation in terms of section 5 (1) and (2) of the Civil Union Act (Act 17 of 2006), in February 2008.
 
This Alliance, its members, and duly appointed marriage officers, herewith affirm support for the repeal of section 6 of Act 17.
