Take Action






Now you’ve seen the film you might be asking how you can play a part in the campaign for justice for the Marikana miners facing serious charges, and the families of those who were killed. What is important is that the truth comes out and that appropriate action is taken against the people responsible for the massacre. For this to happen we believe that many people need to see this film, discuss the issues and begin to ask “What can we do?”

These are some of our suggestions of how you can help:

DONATE to the Justice campaign

Half of the money collected will go to the families of the slain miners. The rest will be used to mobilise action around the country.
