Human Rights Day 2024

By Marlene le Roux
Human Rights Day is historic in South Africa. It is a day when we cannot forget the horrors of Sharpeville and Langa. These atrocities were a response to people who raised their voices against the inhumanity of the apartheid government of the day, sixty four years ago.
