They put that huge statue of him right in the middle of the most affluent "white" area of Johannesburg. Not here where we spilled our blood and where it all started. Mandela is now a corporate foundation. He is wheeled out globally to collect the money and he is content doing that. The ANC have effectively sidelined him but they keep him as a figurehead fo...Read Full Post »

Bloody Marikana: What the media didn't tell you.
Earlier today, SNI members set off to Marikana, the crime scene at which several black workers were shot and killed last week. Getting into the town is not an easy feat.

In a research paper, Madeleine Fullard of the National Prosecuting Authority’s Missing Persons Task Team, formed as per a recommendation from the Truth and Reconciliation Comm...Read Full Post »
