Trending News – Sharpeville 1960

Human Rights Day, 21 March, is a national holiday celebrating the sacrifices ordinary South Africans have made for their freedom.

On this day in 1960, about 5 000 people gathered outside the police station in Sharpeville. The crowd was peaceful, but demanding to be arrested for disobeying the inhuman pass laws.

Instead, police guns blazed – and 69 people died.
