Marikana Massacre – Families seek legal action and discussion of Marikana Report

As we gear up to mark the 3rd anniversary of the Marikana massacre several organisations and allies have been working tirelessly to continue the fight for justice for those affected by the Massacre. The families of the slain Marikana Miners, with support from The Socio-Economic Rights Institute of South Africa (SERI) , the Legal Resources Center (LRC) and the WITS Law Clinic have filed civil claims against the Government.

The Marikana Support Campaign has also released a press statement requesting that the State takes a morally correct stance on the Marikana victims compensation claims.

David Bruce for the Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution (CASAC) has provided a summary and discussion of the report of the Marikana Commission. The report is essential reading for those who want to understand where the report failed to properly address the events of 9-16 August and how its ‘key framing argument’ needs to be reviewed.
