Episode 4: Radical! The new human rights lawyers
Meet the visionary men and women who are boldly rewiring South Africa’s legal framework to uplift poor communities. This new generation of young human rights lawyers is drawing on South Africa’s strong tradition of public interest litigation to keep the promise of our constitutional democracy.
“Radical!” introduces viewers to Nomzamo, Princess, Mbekezeli and others, who work on a myriad of issues – rights to housing, water, healthcare services, fair labour practices, electricity, sanitation, a clean and healthy environment, education and children’s rights.
Together they are carrying forward the struggle for justice, helping people to assert their dignity no matter what their circumstances.
