Photo of the Week: Human Rights Day

Human rights day in South Africa is celebrated today as remembrance for for the Sharpeville Massacre in which 69 black South Africans were killed by police for protesting against the pass laws (read more here). I’ve decided to add a photo of statues of South Africa’s four Nobel Peace Prize winners in Cape Town, each of which did some part in South Africa’s fight for human rights (Yes, even FW De Klerk did his bit).
