    Survivors of the 1987 SASOL strike denied the right to commemorate and to demand redress for apartheid crimes, on African Human Rights Day

    On 21 October, 2014: African Human Rights Day, a group of ex-strikers planned to commemorate twenty-seven years since the 1987 SASOL strike with a picket at the SASOL plant in Sasolburg. They applied to the police for permission to demonstrate, painted banners, and brought in members from around the country for this event.

    But when the ex-strikers' representative went to the police station to collect the permission at 2 pm on the 20th, they discovered that Sasol management was there already, meeting the police. Police then refused permission for the gathering, on the grounds that SASOL management had expressed willingness to negotiate outstanding demands – 27 years later. Apparently the demonstration might jeopardize these "negotiations".
