75th Anniversary Commemoration of 1946 Passive Resistance Campaign
Sunday: 13 June 2021
Venue: Depot Road Memorial Primary School in Chatsworth
The Sites of Struggle Collective will mark the 75th anniversary of the 1946 passive resistance against racial segregation. The campaign was spearheaded by the Natal and Transvaal Indian Congresses under the leadership of Doctors Monty Naicker and Yusuf Dadoo. It drew international attention to the Ghetto Act which confined people according to race in separate residential areas. Collective spokesperson Zandile Qono whose family was a key part of the campaign pointed out that the current generation needed to honour the history of the struggle for a non-racial society. “Our activism must serve as memory against forgetting that people lost their lives, went to prison, were thrown out of their homes and had their lives destroyed by a racist government,” said Qono. The organisers will mount a photo exhibition of historic images and call on the descendants of the resistors to light a candle as a flame of hope to strengthen our democracy and non-racialism.
