Tell Minister of Justice to ban public displays of the Apartheid flag

We call on you, Minister of Justice Michael Masutha and Director General of the Department of Justice Vusi Madonsela, to ban public displays of the Apartheid flag.

Why is this important?

The apartheid regime flag is a legacy of apartheid. It is a tool used by people who call themselves South Africans under the democratic constitution of this country. It is a constant reminder of the criminal and unjust acts of our country's past. It is a symbol of oppression and it should be banned from being displayed in public. This will help prevent those who still have it from terrorizing Black people.

Reasons for signing

  • Apartheid was rightfully declared a crime against humanity. The Apartheid flag, which is a symbol of such crime, cannot be displayed in public. It should be treated with the same disdain as the Nazi flag, for they are both symbols of hatred.
  • This flag is a display of when POC people in South Africa was under extreme oppression and exposed to pain and violence. It is still shown by racist who still long for those days of evil towards POC people.
  • The old flag is still a deep scar for many South Africans and an ugly stain on the pages of history. It's been a massive barrier to racial reconciliation and healing so it has to go!
