African National Congress

Posted by lednum on August 29, 2006

We did some work today on the African National Congress


The aims and objectives of the ANC are to:

2.1 Unite all the people of South Africa, Africans in particular, for the complete liberation of the country from all forms of discrimination and national oppression.
2.2 End apartheid in all its forms and transform South Africa as rapidly as possible into a united, non-racial, non-sexist and democratic country based on the principles of the Freedom Charter and in pursuit of the national democratic revolution.
2.3 Defend the democratic gains of the people and to advance towards a society in which the government is freely chosen by the people according to the principles of universal suffrage on a common voters’ role.
2.4 Fight for social justice and to eliminate the vast inequalities created by apartheid and the system of national oppression.
2.5 Build a South African nation with a common patriotism and loyalty in which the cultural, linguistic and religious diversity of the people is recognised.
2.6 Promote economic development for the benefit of all.
2.7 Support and advance the cause of women’s emancipation.
2.8 Support and advance the cause of national liberation, development, world peace, disarmament and environmentally sustainable development.
2.9 Support and promote the struggle for the rights of children and the disabled.
