A Complex Hope For A Shared Future
The Freedom Charter of 1956 offered a vision of South Africa focused on(1) equal rights for all;(2)a commitment to learning and culture; (3)work and security for everyone; (4)a commitment to everyone sharing in the country’s wealth; (5)sharing land; and (6)always aiming at peace and friendship. During the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) of 1998-2001, we made an attempt, as a country to face the horrors of our past and to hear some stories of human rights violations under Apartheid to ensure that it is never repeated.
