Book: Justice, redress and restitution; voices of widows of the Marikana Massacre

Marikana Widows book coverThe deaths of 34 strikers at the hands of heavily armed South African police, on the 16th of August 2012, rocked viewers across the world. These scenes of police firing on protesters were far too reminiscent of events twenty and thirty years ago – events which South Africans, our elected government, and people across the world had demanded, must never, ever happen again. Then, at Marikana, it did happen again.

We present here eight narratives, told through visual art and in words, of women who are  family members of men killed in the Marikana Massacre. These stories came from a workshop with the women held by Khulumani Support Group in May 2013, while the women sat in silence at the Marikana Commission of Inquiry.

These women’s lives linked to the men killed in the Marikana massacre, sharing their needs and struggles, children, decisions, and dreams of the future. Yet despite all the attention that given to events at Marikana and its aftermath, these women have been left silent – until now.
