He was not in. The petition demanded of Strijdom that the pass laws be abolished. In 1955 – protest women wait – women from all over the Reef gathered at the Union Buildings, Pretoria on Thursday, October 27, to protest to cabinet Minister about a suggestion that African women carry passes and against the Bantu Education Act.
