The Marikana Massacre
3rd Anniversary Commemoration

SUNDAY, August 16th, 6PM
Omni Commons

On August 16th, 2012, 34 striking miners at Marikana were gunned down by South African security forces in the Marikana Massacre. It was the single most lethal use of force by the South African government since the Sharpeville Massacre in 1960.

Please join us for a commemoration for the miners who were murdered at Marikana, and an analysis for what it means for working class struggle in South Africa.
