Attention: All Editors and ReportersThe South African Human Rights Commission would like to express its concern over the situation in Malamulele, Limpopo, where, as reported in some radio stations children were forced out of schools, and by those who claim to be in a struggle to force government to establish a separate municipality for Malamulele district.

ATTENTION: Editors and Reporters
The South African Human Rights Commission welcomes the decision by the South African government to ratify the United Nations International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR).
The decision by government, which was effected this past week, on the 12th January 2015, should be commended as it ensures that South Africa is finally able to honor its international obligations and to consolidate its commitment to alleviate poverty and ensure social justice for all.
From high-profile cases to cases that never make the headlines, it is clear that there is no ceasefire of the war in homes, neighborhoods and workplaces. Patriarchs, from pulpits and podiums, attack the dignity of people who do not conform to militarized masculinity and submissive femininity. Every day we hear of misogynistic attacks on babies, children, heterosexual and lesbian women and people who are gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex.
The Commission is available on social media
