The Parliament of South Africa website offers many ways to learn about their activities and functions. Those visitors unfamiliar with the establishment of a parliament in South Africa that fairly represents the population of its people can discover more about its history under the "Our Parliament" link at the top of the page. Here visitors will also find a video of the history of the Parliament. Users of the website will also appreciate the different ways to "Participate in Parliament", such as "Forums", "Meetings", and "Petitions". The link "Parliamentary Democracy Offices" is also found here and "is a mechanism that will assist in promoting and entrenching democracy in South Africa...[and] promote a better understanding of the role of Parliament and raise awareness in the public domain." On the far right side of the homepage visitors will find a link to "InSession", Parliament's monthly newsletter. Previous editions of the newsletter can be accessed below the link to the current edition. Also on the far right side of the homepage is a list of calls for written submissions on such topics as the "Black Authorities Act Repeal Bill" and the "Protection of Information Bill".
