What is the Salt March:
The Salt March is an annual event when people come to show their solidarity with the principles of ubuntu and nonviolence. This is not a competitive walk. People wlak at their own pace and if they get tired there is a hop on bus. The walk begins at the Phoenix Settlement in Inanda and ends at the Kings Park Athletic Stadium.
This walk celebrates the life of Mahatma Gandhi and chief Albert Luthuli, both of who have been vocal in their support for the development of a culture of nonviolence and ubuntu. The tenth clause of the South African Freedom Charter states:
There shall be Peace and Friendship!
South Africa shall be a fully independent state which respects the rights and sovereignty of all nations. South Africa shall strive to maintain world peace and the settlement of all international disputes by negotiation –not war. Peace and friendship amongst all our people shall be secured by upholding the equal rights, opportunities and status of all. The people of the protectorates Basutoland, Bechuanaland and Swaziland shall be free to decide for themselves their own future. The right of all peoples of Africa to independence and self-government shall be recognized, and shall be the basis of close co-operation.
Let all people who love their people and their country now say, as we say here:
These freedoms we will fight for, side by side, throughout our lives until we have won our liberty!
Clubs and schools are encouraged to join as a unit. Call us if you are interested. You can show your solidarity by walking or by volunteering to help at water points and in other ways.
