I went to the visit the Freedom Charter in Soweto. I was very fortunate to have taken this picture, as the sun was in the right position.

The charter was adopted on June 26, 1955 after a two-day Congress of the People at Kliptown, on the border of Soweto. More than 3000 people, from all races and representing rich and poor, rural and urban, attended the congress, which was held on a field. Most of the delegates had travelled by road, some for days, to get to this congress.

The Freedom Charter states 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.”

I strongly recommend that you visit this historic place where all of our rights have been documented, as South Africans.
