ANC-regime wants to wipe every presence of Afrikaans from the SA map

Language rights

No government can claim the status of being a mature democracy if such government cannot or will not reach a balance between the rights and interest of the majority and those of minorities; and no moral justification can be found for racially motivated policies that reduce any grouping to second-class citizens in the country of their birth or take away their right to use the language of their ancestors.

A civilized country should hold to the Language rights. Free usage of minority languages must be possible in both the private and the public domain and mother tongue education to the highest levels should stay provided, including the existence of single-medium educational establishments. No government may, under the guise of access, derogate from the right to mother tongueeducation.

A highly developed country should not be afraid of her past and should welcome any development, but accepting older traditions. They should more try to protect and promote the cultural, linguistic and religious identity of national minorities in order to foster cordial relations between population groups and to promote peace, democracy, justice and stability. They also should create opportunities and mechanisms for effective participation by national minorities in public life and economic activity, giving all opportunity to use their own language of tongue and body (spoken language, movement or dance).

Constitutional rights

Does it not say in the Preamble to the Constitution of South Africa (1996) that “… South Africa belongs to all who live in her, united in diversity”? Why do you have to kill than that diversity?

Poster of the UNESCO for the International Mother Language Day.

[Section 6] calls out for the promotion and protection of multi-lingualism; [Section 16] The right to freedom of expression, which is also the right to express vocally with the sounds people choose to use and the right of each person to use the language of his or her own choice and to take part in his or her own choice of cultural life [Section 30].

The Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural, Religious and Language Communities [Section 185] should keep to its institutional tasks and serve the purpose for which it had been established.
