The Freedom Charter
I was driving into Cape Town a few days ago and this graffiti artist’s work caught my eye, it also made me think so much about what we stand for and what we are going through as a young democracy in relation to the freedom of information bill that is causing such public outbursts.
Remember let’s not end up slouched over something full of regrets that we could have done more – below are the first few lines of the Freedom Charter:
[blockquote]We, the people of South Africa, declare for all our country and the world to know: that South Africa belongs to all who live in it, black and white, and that no government can justly claim authority unless it is based on the will of the People.[/blockquote]
