South Africa Human Rights Day is of critical importance in the lives of all South African citizens.
In 1960, on this historic day almost sixty nine people were killed in a police firing at Sharpeville. It was the period of the Apartheid where ethnic origins had raised their voices in opposition to the pass laws made by the white ruling party.
Today South African Human Rights Day seeks to ascertain that South Africans have developed an understanding of the various human rights they are entitled to and can protect themselves against human rights exploitation.
