SALGA Special 2017 Youth Month Message

Posted: 02 June 2017

Share:

The Month of June in South African is regarded as Youth Month.

This year’s Youth Month theme is “The year of OR Tambo: Advancing Youth Economic Empowerment” and pays tribute to school pupils who lost their lives during the 16 June 1976 uprising in Soweto.

This year marks the 41st anniversary of the Soweto uprisings. June 16th commemorations are closely attached to the historical events of 1976 in Soweto, where hordes of learners took to the streets to protest against the arbitrary introduction of Afrikaans as a medium of instruction for public schools. Afrikaans was used as a launching pad from which to challenge the repressive apartheid government.

The police shootings of young people in Soweto sparked a massive uprising that soon spread to over a 100 urban and rural areas across the country.

Soweto is being used as a flag bearer or as an ideological/commemorative embodiment for the rest of the other youth struggles elsewhere in the country and the many innocent lives of young people that were lost in the process.

While the youth of 1976 fought for freedom and the creation of a democratic state, today’s youth activism is directed towards successfully tackling the challenges of combating poverty, unemployment, free tertiary education, drugs, HIV/AIDS, personal development; economic freedom and the development of our country amongst others.

As we celebrate 16 years of Developmental Local Government, SALGA recommits itself, together with other spheres of government, to engage with youth agencies and participate in the implementation of policies, initiatives, and programmes aimed to empower the youth of South Africa.

SALGA salutes the Youth of 1976 and the Youth of today!
