HUMAN RIGHTS DAY SPEECH 2014

It is 54 years ago that 69 people in this area met their Waterloo.

On the morning of 16 June 1976 following months of frustration thousands of African school children in Soweto walked to Orlando Stadium to protest against what the then regime took as a matter-of-fact issue, teaching almost all subjects in Afrikaans.
