Human Rights Day 2016

South Africa commemorates the Sharpville Massacres on Human Rights Day. It is exactly 56 years on since the brutal massacre of 69 people protesting against one of the most diabolic system of apartheid. As South Africa remembers the heroic sacrafices made by the people, Freedom Park calls upon all South Africans to stand against any form of racism in our society. May this day help unite us more than it has ever done before. May the ideals of a united, democratic and non racial South African find resonances within our lives. The blood of our heroes and heroines who perished during Sharpville Massacre and the hundreds who were injured shall forever remain a stuck reminder that the freedom we now enjoy today came at a huge price. Freedom Park has inscribed more than 85 000 names of the heros and heroines who died thoughout the the eight conflicts that shapred our beatiful land South Africa. Africans, fellow Africans and those from other continents to come pay homage to our heroes and heroines on this historic day.
