“On the Journey of Remembrance (JOR) former freedom fighters take you back to a time when incidents as the Trojan Horse and Gugulethu Seven were common in South Africa. On our time together, we visit sites that are etched into the memories of the people who live on the Cape Flats.
You will see the Cape Flats through the eyes of those who lived this experience and survived it and see the realities of Cape Town as it is today. The excursion is an integration of the experience of former soldiers – who live in different townships across the Cape Flats – into a movement of speaking, listening, exchange and understanding. The excursions have opened up spaces for former freedom fighters to start the process of healing and reconstruction”
