UNDERSTANDING THE MARIKANA MINING MASSACRE IN SA- A Panel on the Omitted Narratives of Health and Justice
Join our panel as they seek to analyse developments pre and post the Marikana massacre in South Africa, with a focus on human rights and its role in addressing the wage and non-wage aspects of mine worker lives using a social justice lens. The panel will also discuss justice and health aspects of compensation for regional mine workers who acquire fatal lung diseases while at, and because of, mine work.
The panel will also discuss on-going work between SA academics and activists with the Yale Global Health and Justice Partnership and their on-going joint project on mine workers rights in Southern Africa.
