Dear friend of the FMF
In this week’s feature article, Chris Hattingh explains the importance of property rights in protecting each South African’s individual rights. Amending section 25 of the Constitution will have negative consequences for the lives of all South Africans but is an especially egregious affront to Black South Africans. They were denied property rights throughout the era of apartheid South Africa and will again be denied the security of constitutionally protected property rights.
Property rights are human rights – CHRIS HATTINGH
We take for granted the rights for which many fought and died. We also seem to be taking lightly the serious threats that are being made to our freedoms. The most serious being the move by the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) and African National Congress (ANC) to amend section 25 of the Constitution to allow for expropriation without compensation because such an action will undo the right which underpins all other freedoms we enjoy. Without property rights no other human rights are possible.
