We congratulate The Chinese Association on the hate speech judgement in the Equality Court today
The SA Jewish Board of Deputies (SAJBD) congratulates The Chinese Association (TCA) on the successful outcome of their Equality Court Judgment in the Johannesburg High Court in respect to hate speech against the Chinese community.
The SAJBD welcomes this important judgment, which represents another significant advance in the ongoing fight against racist hate speech and unfair discrimination in South Africa. As with the recently concluded Qwelane and Masuku cases, our courts have sent out an unequivocal message that hate speech on the basis of people’s intrinsic identity, whether this concerns race, ethnicity, religion or other grounds, will not be tolerated in our country.
The SAJBD applauds the Chinese Association on taking up this important matter and on pursuing it through to a successful conclusion.
