On behalf of the Democratic Alliance, I extend my deepest sympathy to the family and friends of veteran anti-apartheid activist Fatima Meer, who sadly passed away yesterday. Meer was an inspirational human being, a prominent academic, writer and activist who played an important role in opposing the apartheid government. Her outspoken opposition to the ruling National Party resulted in her and her family sacrificing a great deal in the struggle for freedom and democracy in South Africa.

In recent years she has remained an outspoken activist for human rights, despite her frailty.

South Africa mourns her loss.
