Miners Shot Down (DVD)

Miners Shot Down (DVD)

  • R 12000


In August 2012, mineworkers in one of South Africa's biggest platinum mines began a wildcat strike for better wages. Six days later the police used live ammunition to brutally suppress the strike, killing 34 and injuring many more.

Miners Shot Downshows the courageous fight waged by a group of low-paid workers against the combined forces of mining company Lonmin, the ANC government and their allies in the National Union of Mineworkers.

What emerges is collusion at the top, spiralling violence and the country's first post-apartheid massacre.
