The C.O.W.S. MINERS SHOT DOWN: Rehad Desai (South Africa)

Monday, October 27th 2:00PM Eastern/ 11:00AM Pacific

The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Rehad Desai live from South Africa. Mr. Desai is a graduate of the University of Zimbabwe and the University of the Witwatersrand. His family’s South African legacy and the end of the so called Apartheid regime have greatly impacted his choices in film. In 2008 he released Bhambatha: War of the Heads 1906 – it depicts black people resisting White Terrorism (Colonialism). Mr. Desai’s most recent work documents the 2012 Lonmin Minning Massacre, Miners Shot Down. More than 100 black miners were shot – 36 fatalities. Mr. Desai’s work debunks misconceptions around this butchering of black people. It has not been widely reported that after the initial 17 strikers were murdered, ambulances were not given access to dozens of wounded black people and enforcement officers hunted and killed an additional seventeen black Victims. It’s been suggested that the drug-induced, armed, black savages deserved what they got. In the two years since this slaughter, not one officer has been reprimanded. Many of the black workers who were shot are being charged with murder.
