Please be advised that the following post is made in my personal capacity and not as a Vuvuzela Journalist.
I cannot begin to express how disappointed I am in the Wits SRC.
This evening Miners and activists of the Marikana Massacre were escorted out of the Ruth First memorial lecture at the great hall, after they were denied an opportunity to speak to Trevor Manuel.
The Deputy president of the SRC was present at that lecture. An hour before that a large group of PYA members were at the great hall, picketing and performing for fun.
But when those Miners got up to speak, nobody was there for them.
Marikana happened here, in our home, on our soil, and you have nothing to say?
But you’ll bring the university to a stand still for Israel Apartheid.
Fathers, uncles, brothers lost their lives in that massacre and when it matters the most, you have nothing to say?
