In 1948 White South Africans Known as Afrrikans passed a law known as apartheid witch was the separation of all races it was supposed to be equal but this was not the case and it was seen early on whites had the upper hand in everything that had to do with the country Blacks couldn't vote or have say in the government.
The government promised that separate tribal states would be enough for the other races but since Blacks made up for 70 percent of the population only 14 percent of the land was given over so the Blacks saw themselves going back to the Afrrickans for help and for resources. They were also expected to have passes that they had to carry around all the time to ensure they couldn't leave the country.
I think it's time for change.
A group called the A.N.C Strongly opposed apartheid and violated it's laws with protest and other events. Witch later led to it later being outlawed. And other Anti-apartheid groups. They A.N.C was seen as a opponent to the mainly white gov and they were the voice for blacks.
we have representation in the goverment
we must have equality for all people
The revolution started when in 1960 the A.N.C was protesting at a police station without their identification passes. At most places it was broken up peacefully but at sharpeville it ended in blood shed when 69 people were killed and 180 were wounded witch led people around the world to help in the fight for the end of apartheid.
The recovery happened when F.W De Klerk was elected president of South Africa he lifted the 30 year ban on Anti-apartheid rallies and freed Nelson Mandela. He also made a new south African constitution that ended apartheid and racial bais in the government.
