Human Rights Day, 21 March calls for reflection on the progressive standard of rights enshrined in the South African Constitution. The Bill of Rights is a cornerstone of democracy in South Africa. It enshrines the rights of all people in the country and affirms the democratic values of human dignity, equality and freedom.
