15 July-1 Nov 2006. Breaking The Silence: A Luta Continua is the result of a collaborative project between the Human Rights Media Centre and the Khulumani Support Group Western Cape involving over 1,000 local victims of apartheid who have used scrap books, photographs, memory cloths, drawings, paintings, art banners and film to tell the story of their life. The exhibition has the double aim of honouring ordinary people in the struggle against white minority rule in South Africa and educating the general public about apartheid. It highlights a number of anti-apartheid issues including the Khulumani lawsuit filed in the United States against 23 multinational corporations for their collusion with the apartheid regime; the unfinished business of the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission; and the United Nations campaign against torture and for the rights of survivors. Mon-Fri 08.30-16.30, Sat 09.00-13.00, Sun closed. Entrance adults R7.00, children R2.00, students R3.00.
