There are a ton of them, but here are the nonreligious holidays and their background information: 21 March, Human Rights Day-On this day in 1960, the police killed 69 people at Sharpville, in South Africa, who were protesting against recently passed laws. Many demonstrators were shot it the back. Four days later, the government banned black political organizations. Many leaders were arrested or went into exile. Human Rights Day is but one step to ensure the people of South Africa their rights and to ensure that such a thing will never occur on South African soil. 27 April, Freedom Day-This was the day, in 1944, that South Africa had it's first democratic election (an election where all adults could vote irrespectively of their race), and the day in 1997 when the new constitution took effect. 1 May, Worker's Day- Many countries around the world commemorate the contribution made by workers to society on May Day (America doesn't celebrate this holiday because of its communist origins). It has traditionally been a day to protest for better wages and working conditions. Given the role that trade unions played in the fight for freedom, it is unsurprising that South Africa commemorates this day.
