Youth Day South Africa June 16, 2017

Youth Day -South Africa

June 16 marks the day many Soweto schoolchildren lost their lives during a peaceful demonstration against the government ruling on teaching the students in Afrikaans.Two students, Hastings Ndlovu and Hector Pieterson were killed by the police during the protest.The below picture became a testimony of the struggle against apartheid.
Youth Day serves as a reminder of the ugliness of apartheid which existed in South Africa and also racism which still exists around the world.
