SOUTH AFRICA OF NELSON MANDELA’S DREAM IN THE 60TH YEAR OF THE FREEDOM CHARTER”.

June 09, 2015

Nelson Mandela Museum will hold a seminar aimed at celebrating six decades of the Freedom Charter at the Nelson Mandela Youth and Heritage Centre, Qunu.

The seminar came at a time when South Africans have clashed with their fellow African brothers and sisters who came to South Africa because of founded and unfounded claims. The seminar will also look at the role of the Freedom Charter in tackling current challenges faced by South African communities.

The theme for the seminar is called “SOUTH AFRICA OF NELSON MANDELA’S DREAM IN THE 60TH YEAR OF THE FREEDOM CHARTER”.

This is in line with Nelson Mandela’s African National Congress and its alliance partner’s declaration to mark 2015 as a year to celebrate 60 years of Freedom Charter’s existence.

South Africans and the world will recall a statement made by Nelson Mandela during his Rivonia Trial where he said “I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal for which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.” His remarks were informed by the founding principles of the Freedom Charter.

Nelson Mandela made this statement during Rivonia Trial on 20 April 1964 after nine years of Freedom Charters adoption in 1955.

The seminar will be addressed by Gwede Mantashe who is the African National Congress Secretary General.

The event is scheduled to take place on the 11th June 2015 at the Nelson Mandela Youth and Heritage Centre. The seminar will start at 16h00.
