The Foundation for Human Rights says the 21st of March 1960 will always be remembered as a key moment in the struggle against apartheid. It’s a day when thousands of ordinary South Africans rose in unison against unfair discrimination and black segregation. The police violence on that day shocked the world and highlighted the brutality and oppressive nature of apartheid policies. The transitioning to democracy in 1994 brought hope as people looked forward to enjoying their hard-fought rights. Almost thirty years later, we look at how much has changed for the previously disadvantaged in South Africa.
