Freedom Park pays tribute to the heroes and heroines who suffered the injustice of past colonization, slavery, economic exploitation. The Indian Diaspora/SABC 3 will pay tribute to the Indentured Labourer on the Wall of Names in an event that will come alive with song, dance and musical recitals as we restore honour and dignity to those who fell in the struggle for humanity and freedom.
Freedom Park is committed to reconciliation and nation building amongst the entire South African population. We want to instil a sense of national pride in this icon of humanity and freedom. More importantly, we want to create awareness amongst the different communities that a site exists where those that died fighting for freedom and liberation in this country are being honoured.
Given Freedom Park’s mandate of immortalising previously unsung heroes and heroines, we will continue to support endeavours that strive to honour our heroes and heroines for their contribution to the establishment of democracy and liberation, as we continue to inspire people across our nation. This inevitably results in a collective ownership and a united nation.
