On 16 August 2012, 34 South African mineworkers were gunned down by police in collusion with the British mining company, Lonmin, and Government Ministers. This documentary memorialises this atrocity:
A Commission of Inquiry has been launched into the tragedy.
On 26 November 1988, police and then military began a campaign of violence, logistically supported by British company Rio – ‘Better the Devil You Know’ – Tinto, and government Ministers, against landowners on Bougainville. Many thousands were killed. No commission of inquiry was called, no truth commission was launched. The Prime Minister in charge during this period of abuse and mass brutality, was rewarded with a Board position at the then Rio Tinto subsidiary, Bougainville Copper Limited.
