Khulumani marks Heritage Day 2016 with a Call to Remember Our Past

On National Heritage Day, 24th September 2016, Khulumani Support Group remembers our past. We say:

- We do not forget our family members, friends and other comrades who were murdered by the apartheid security forces.
- We remember that some of the murderers have not yet been brought to justice.
- We do not forget our daughters and sons and others, abducted by the apartheid security forces, who disappeared without trace.
- We do not forget our spouses, daughters, sons and comrades who were tortured by the apartheid security forces, whose lives remain disrupted and made defective, without healing.
- We do not forget the cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment deliberately meted out to the majority of our peoples by the apartheid government, who regarded most of us as an inferior “species” and who eliminated those of us (black and white) who opposed them.

Critically Rethinking the Implications of Impunity for South Africa's Apartheid Chemical and Biological Warfare Programme: The POISONED PASTS Exhibition, Nelson Mandela Foundation from 6 October 2016

The Nelson Mandela Foundation will host an exhibition from 6 October called POISONED PASTS, while the process of sentencing Dr Wouter Basson for his involvement in the apartheid government's Chemical and Biological Weapons Programme, remains stalled by his reversion to the North Gauteng High Court in efforts to claim bias on the part of the HPCSA's Disciplinary Panel.

The exhibition at the Nelson Mandela Foundation focuses on the use of poison and chemical substances by the military and the police and the impacts of these substances on those suspected of being harmed.
