Submissions with respect to the Prevention of Hate Crimes and Hate Speech Bill B9-2018

Sonke welcomes the publication of the Prevention of Hate Crimes and Hate Speech Bill (The Bill) by the Department of Justice and Constitutional Affairs. Sonke further welcomes the opportunity given to the public to provide comments and recommendations. We believe given the complexity and frequent occurrences of hate crimes and hate speech, the finalisation of this bill is critical to better address this multi-layered violence in our society.

Kindly take note, Sonke would welcome the chance to give oral submissions in Parliament should the opportunity so arise.

We also wish to note that as a member of the Hate Crimes Working Group, we support and endorse the submissions made by the Hate Crimes Working Group on the Bill.
