EXCLUSIVE: The unfinished business of Marikana
It’s seven years since police opened fire on striking mineworkers at Marikana, and more than four since the Farlam commission of inquiry released its recommendations on the matter. What’s changed?
The 2012 Marikana massacre is deeply etched in SA’s collective memory. In the days leading up to it, a wage demand turned into an unprotected strike, unsupported by the majority union.
High levels of violence and intimidation during the strike led to 10 deaths.
