PS: Yes, we have corruption but not more so than what we had in former white government.

Put barbwire at the bottom of the hill, give it 50 meters and put up a 2nd one, another 50/100meters a 3rd. If they pass the first barbwire you use rubber bullets (teargas), if they pass the 2nd teargas (rubber bullets), if the 3rd is broken you use the water cannons. By that time most would have been immobilized. Makes perfect sense that much less would have lost their lives.

This shack was burnt down last night. It belonged to a man who did not go on strike. twitpic.com/aktajv
"You must never retreat, even in the face of death," he told the gathering, not far from the koppie where 34 had died only days before.
And even if strikers did fire at the police first, the police should not have fired back.
But it was to Jacob Zuma that he returned time and time again. Zuma, Malema said, had told police to use maximum force. "From today, when asked 'who is your president', you must say 'I don't have a president'," he urged the group.

Apartheid was bad, but post-Apartheid South Africa is ten times worth.
The ANC is a member of the "Socialist International". Like all other leftist countries, SA is gradually devolving to a genocidal totalitarian state.
They dont stop at deposessing and murdering white farmers but do the same toward the black population or anyone who stands in the way of the socialist workers paradise. So you see, anywhere in the world leftists are in power, evil ensues.

For whom? Which if any part of South-African society is suffering 'ten times more' now than they did in the 70's and 80's?
But perhaps if you knew something about the ANC you would realise that they only thing they seem really adapt at is staying in power and making sure that there are enough concentrated wealth in this country that their free meal may continue forever.
The Guns of Marikana
There, under the instructions of a medicine man who allegedly hails from Eastern Cape, they stripped naked, stood in single file and waited for their turn to be sprinkled with herbs.
The medicine man used a razor blade on some of the men, making small incisions on their foreheads before smearing a black, gel-like potion on them.
Police identified the man as a senior mine supervisor. Pangas were used to hack his face and head, and he was left for dead on a footpath.
A picture taken by the police shows the man’s mangled body lying face up, one eye wide in death, and a cow’s skull on his chest.
We learnt that there were strict rules governing this gathering: no hats, no jewellery, no mobile phones, no cameras and, above all, strictly no women.
