Merci d'avance !
I am going to talk about the notion of places and forms of power. First, I would like to give a definition of power. Power is is the ability to control others and to make things happen despite obstacles, resistance, or opposition. This of course leads to conflict between those who have and exercise power and those who have none or little of it. As a consequence, the exercice of power within a community requires that its members accept a complex system of laws and respect symbols such as specific places especially court, parliament and prison. To illustrate this notion, I have chosen to focus on South African places and forms of power. How can people from different cultures live together in harmony ? First I will show how apartheid was put in place and I will highlight the opposition of this forms of power. Eventually, I will relate the burying of apartheid and the difficult creation of an harmonious nation in spite of different cultures.
We began by studying the establishment of Apartheid in South Africa. It was set by the National Party, which won the election in 1948. It led to a brutally codified segregation between Blacks, Asians, Coloured people , Many Afrikans, who did not work for white people where packed in Bantustans, which were poorly equipped and were far away from the major cities ; while those who worked for Whites had to leave in townships such as Soweto and needed passbooks to get into “white cities”. This law aimed at creating a separate nationhood.
Moreover in Sharpeville lot of people protested against passbooks and for an increase of their incomes, turned into a slaughter. Indeed 69 black persons were killed so that Sharpeville became a symbol of the unfair white power. Nelson Mandela, which represented a counter power because he struggled tirelessly for egalitarianism, was put in jail and regarded as a political prisoner.
When Mandela walked out of jail and became the first democratically elected president in 1994, he aimed at building a new South Africa that would be democratic, non racist and non-sexist. As well as writting a new constitution which proclaims the recognition of black people’s rights, he and set Truth and Reconciliation Commission. He forsteredn forgiveness over vengeance and his will to create a unified and harmonious Rainbow Nation. Since his mandate, a black middle-class has been emerging. Besides, politics is no longer the preserve of the whites.
To conclude, people from different cultures can nowadays live together in harmony thanks to a long and painful fight for equality led by honorable persons. It is true that there have been major political and social advances in South Africa, however issues about both corruption and fraud are lasted.
