Human Rights Day is a reminder of the suffering occurred during the 1960 Sharpeville Massacre when, South Africans gathered around to protest against the pass laws that restricted and controlled travel, dictating when, where, and for how long black South Africans could stay within white areas.
This day is also a celebration, as it is marked by an affirmation of ordinary people, rising together to proclaim their rights. It is because of this that South Africa has included human rights in our own Bill of Rights, Chapter 2 of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa
Human Rights Day impresses on each and every individual to stand up for their rights and those of others civil, economic, political and cultural rights. This day we should commemorate the hard-fought collective freedoms and not stay complacent and ignore socioeconomic rights, particularly those harmed by widespread violent crime, poverty and poor services.
