Retired Constitutional Court Judge, Albie Sachs, says South Africa has the most expansive constitutional clause in the world referring to freedom of expression and of the press and media. Sachs is the keynote speaker at an event at the SABC auditiorium in Sea Point, remembering Black Wednesday. He says he cannot see how people can say nothing has changed since apartheid as that diminishes the magnitude of their struggle. The 19th of October 1977, saw the World and Weekend World newspapers banned along with numerous organisations by former minister of justice, Jimmy Kruger, as well as the subsequent detention of journalists and political activists. Sachs also made reference to how how his writings were banned during the struggle.
