“Human rights are not a privilege granted by the few, they are a liberty entitled to all, and human rights, by definition, include the rights of all humans, those in the dawn of life, the dusk of life, or the shadows of life.” – Kay Granger
Happy Human Rights Day South Africa!
Today, we celebrate and honour the sacrifices made by those who fought for our human rights, and continue to fight for equality and justice. Let’s remember that we all have the power to make a difference and create positive change in our communities.
On this day, we remember the Sharpeville Massacre of 1960, which led to the establishment of the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. Let’s use this day as a reminder to stand up against all forms of discrimination and prejudice.
Let’s also take a moment to appreciate the progress we have made towards a more equal and just society, but recognize that there is still much work to be done. We must continue to fight for the rights of all South Africans, regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, religion or any other characteristic.
Today, let us all commit to upholding human rights and promoting equality, justice and peace. Let’s use our voices to speak up against injustice and discrimination, and to build a brighter future for all.
