Grass Roots Civics
IRASA is an independent, grass-roots, non-political, civic-orientated association of local stakeholders, and residents and ratepayers in the area.
We believe that through networking with each other we can address issues that affect our suburb more effectively than through political party structures. We have proved that that is the case, and no development is possible without co-operation.
We believe that the time has come to liberate civic matters during local elections from the clutches of political parties which are interested only in using our votes to service their ambitions for position and power.
As such IRASA stands for hands-on community co-operation, which supports our ratepayers and residents, rather than representation through political party structures which may invariably have their own agenda(s).
