Freedom Park is taking part in the World Trade Market 2015 taking place in Cape Town from Wednesday till Friday.

“[The] World Trade Market 2015 audience will be exposed to the Wall of Names, which is an element amongst many within Freedom Park wherein more than 80 000 names of the heroes and heroines who perished in various wars like the First World War, Second World War, Anglo Boer War, Wars of Résistance and Liberation War are inscribed,” Freedom Park spokesperson Naomi Madima said.

She said the World Trade Market 2015 is one of the most suitable platforms for Freedom Park to exhibit its iconic symbols because it is the host for African and international exhibitors in the tourism industry.

“Exhibition lovers who will pause for a moment at Freedom Park’s space will be indulged on information dating back to 3.6 billion years,” Madima said.

Visitors to Freedom Park exhibition area will be enriched with information on various phases of the South African history narrated from slavery, genocide, colonialism, industrialisation, liberation until democracy.

“Freedom Park is a national monument in a true sense in that it encompasses and embraces a history of all South Africans and acknowledges other international liberation heroes and heroines,” she said.

Freedom Park has embarked on an unprecedented outreach programme to get the public to visit Freedom Park.

During the sessions, Freedom Park educates the nation on issues of national importance such as heritage, culture, history and spirituality all foregrounded on indigenous knowledge systems.  Central to these sessions is advocacy for reconciliation, national building and social cohesion. –
