Mr Speaker, it gives me great pleasure to display in the House this Flame of Truth that the hon Trollip, the hon Hlengwa, other hon Members of Parliament and I received from people outside Parliament an hour ago. This Flame of Truth has toured the country. It has been in Johannesburg and Durban, and it has now reached Cape Town. From here it will go to all the parliaments around the world.
It's a symbolic flame. As you can see, there is no real flame to pose a threat. It is a symbol of the quest of the people of Tibet to bring to others the truth about and knowledge of the sufferings of all those who do not enjoy the rights and liberties which are so freely enjoyed in this country and in other countries.
We are very proud to have made our contribution by showing this Flame of Truth in this august Chamber, because we know that in spite of the heckling and the lack of depth in some of the remarks that are being made, most of the people of this House are indeed committed to the protection of human rights ...
