Podcast: RADIO TODAY Interview about the Marikana massacre and women affected by the deaths of their husbands

On 21 August 2014, the Radio Today programme, The Crux Of The Matter, hosted by Alfred Lephoi and produced by Jackie Kanapi, interviewed Khulumani Board Member and activist Judy Seidman and Gillian Schutte, Founder and Activist from Media For Justice, about the Marikana massacre and women affected by the deaths of their husbands. 

US District Court Judge Scheindlin dismisses the Apartheid Litigation on grounds that the recent narrowing of the scope of application of the Alien Tort Statute now prevents claims that involve foreign subsidiaries of American corporations

After twelve years of sustained advocacy towards ending the impunity of transnational companies for aiding and abetting the perpetration of gross human rights violations in South Africa, through their collaboration with and provision of military and other strategic equipment to the security agencies of the apartheid regime, the presiding judge, Shira Scheindlin has ruled that ATS jurisdiction following Kiobel II no longer extends “to claims involving foreign conduct by foreign subsidiaries of American corporations.” In the Khulumani case, all the conduct in question relates to conduct by subsidiaries of the American parent companies, Ford Motor Company and IBM. 

REMEMBERING MARIKANA: Marking the Second Anniversary of the Marikana Massacre

The horror of the Marikana Massacre destroyed the illusion that such events would never take place again in South Africa after its emergence from apartheid. Yet in 18 short years, our society generated another shocking massacre.

President Mandela in his inauguration speech on 10 May 1994  spelled out a vision of the possibility of creating a society of which all humanity would be proud and in which experiences of the oppression of one by another would be inconceivable. He said, "Never, never and never again shall it be that this beautiful land will again experience the oppression of one by another."
