Dear Friends,

Welcome to the South African Embassy website and a new month with the following highlights;

Human Rights Month

South Africa commemorates Human Rights Month in March and Human Rights Day on 21 March.

Human Rights Day in South Africa is historically linked with 21 March 1960, and the events of Sharpeville. On that day 69 people died and 180 were wounded when police fired on a peaceful crowd that had gathered in protest against the Pass laws. This day marked an affirmation by ordinary people, rising in unison to proclaim their rights.  It became an iconic date in South Africa’s history that today South Africans commemorate as Human Rights Day as a reminder of our rights and the cost paid for our treasured human rights." Read More...
