Senator SIBRAA —by leave-I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That the Senate-

1. Expresses its abhorrence at the unwarranted slaughter of unarmed black Africans by South African police in Cape Province on 21 March 1985;

2. In particular, expresses its outrage that these killings should have occurred on the 25th Anniversary of the infamous Sharpeville massacre, which focused international attention on racial injustice in South Africa;

3. Reaffirms its total opposition to the injustice and inhumanity of apartheid as demonstrated in yesterday's massacre; and

4. Calls upon the South African Government to act immediately to initiate a process of peaceful transition to democratic government for all races in South Africa.
