This Monday, 11 January at 10pm, millions of people in Mzansi will for the first time be able to watch the truth about Marikana. We have a huge opportunity to channel Monday night's screening of Miners Shot Down on etv, into public support for compensation for those slain, action against police brutality, and accountability from mining companies who exploit our people and resources.
Over 5, 000 of you supported the widows who wanted the documentary broadcast, now we need to mobilise our communities to gather on Monday to watch one of the most important stories of our time.
It has become more important than ever that the story of Marikana is told to the broader public, because there still has been no justice for those slain. Right now, the surviving miners, widows and family members of those slain in the massacre have been battling for compensation. The Presidency has not engaged with them at all, despite claiming talks would begin in January to the media without engaging them directly .
Last year, for the 3rd anniversary of the massacre, the amandla .mobi community organised over 70 events across Mzansi to remember those slain at Marikana. Now, more than ever a TV screening in Mzansi could be used to mobilise thousands to demand justice. But it’s up to us to get our communities to tune in to watch Miners Shot Down. Let history show that you brought people together to remember those slain and continued the call for justice.
