Friday, August 16th, marked the one year anniversary of the Marikana Miners’ Massacre, in which South African Police fatally shot 34 striking platinum miners at the Lonmin Corporation's mine in Marikana, South Africa. KPFA spoke to University of Johannesburg sociology professor Peter Alexander, who attended the memorial, and co-authored an investigation of the massacre, "Marikana, View from the Mountain and a Case to Answer." The book has just been published in the U.S. as "Marikana: Voices from South Africa's Mining Massacre."
