It has been seven years since striking miners at Marikana were shot down and 34 killed by police. It is regarded as the worst episode of state repression and violence in democratic South Africa. Despite the recommendations by the Farlam Commission for further investigations and prosecutions, as well as compensation to the families of those who were killed and injured, little progress has been made. There are no signs of justice being served and in today’s show we discuss the impact on the victims of this horrific event and the prospects of justice and compensation.
