Human Rights Day is a reminder to South Africans about the sacrifices that accompanied the struggle for democracy in our county. As a nation, we reserve this day to reflect on the progress made in promoting and protecting our human rights.
Human Rights Day also acts as a commemoration of the Bill of Rights, as passed by our Constitution. For those who need a quick refresher course, these rights include: the right to equality, the right to human dignity, freedom of movement and residence, the right to life, and the right to use the language and participate in the culture of their choice.
