The Al Kaaf Human Rights Centre in Cape Town hosted the media launch of Human Rights Cycle Tour which aims to memorialise the heroic struggles of the past. Cycling is a centuries-long mode of transport, an excellent form of exercise and, above all, a symbol of freedom through movement. Its symbolism is significantly enhanced by the rich history of the struggle for human rights in South Africa.
The HRCT route is a ± 75km event and traverses major human rights memorials and landmarks, including the Cape Town Parade, the Castle of Good Hope, site of the Battle of Blaauwberg, site of the battle of Lisbeek, to the site of the Trojan Horse massacre in Athlone where blood was shed in the quest for justice, equality, and dignity for all.
