Government May SCRAP CHRISTIAN HOLIDAYS IN SOUTH AFRICA, TAKE A STAND!

(SACNS)

South African Government Plans to end Christian Holidays- Report! And how to stop them doing so!






The Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities will look into whether or not the Public Holidays Act 36 of 1994 is 'biased and unfair [in its] scheduling' apparently the commission received complaints that holidays only regard Christianity and ignore other religions.

'“According to its mandate, we received a number of complaints concerning the biased and unfair scheduling of the Public Holidays Act 36 of 1994,” the commission said in a statement.

The aim of the meetings is to encourage public participation and collate information to determine whether the current situation is discriminatory.

People wanting to make submissions should call 011-537-7600 or see information posted on www.crlcommission.org.za '
