A "BILL" for Animal Rights

25 April 2012, 09:54

The difference between us Human Beings and other creatures on planet earth is that we have a universal language to help us communicate effectively with each other, hence we are able to understand one another irrespective of the person’s background; race; religion; and language, it is the reason a Commission was established for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities Act,  in 2002. Its purpose is to promote and protect the rights of different cultural, religious and language communities. We are the only species on planet earth that are capable to adapt to nature’s challenges, it is one human phenomenon to be born naked unlike our animal friends who have a permanent coat. The roles we imitate in life can differ according to circumstances, unlike the other species. We as humans can assimilate, take any other form and adapt accordingly. Common language can also act as a catalyst that fuels adaptation, hence people who speak the same language can interact quite easily and form bonds of friendship.

The reason we have Human Rights in our constitution is the result of common language and interest, we all aspire to be recognised as citizens of a heterogenous government. Chapter two(2) of the constitution of South Africa contains the Bill of Rights, a human rights charter that protects the civil; political and socio-economic rights of all people in S.A. Therefore this week in our campaigns and peaceful rallies lets not forget those species less fortunate than us, who lack the ability to speak for themselves on the cruelty against animals. Section 12 deals with the Rights to Freedom and Security, it’s a pity our wildlife receives less of this, and in Section 24 contends for the protection of our environment and indigenous wildlife.

The people of this Democratic South Africa should pride themselves on embracing high moral values and ethics, to respect the dignity of each individual. The culture and heritage of the people of this land should be such that there is tolerance for all in our society. "One goal One Nation One United Democratic South Africa".
