On Sunday the 27th of April, a special youth outreach screening of Miners Shot Down took place at Sizwe Secondary School in Germiston, South Africa. The screening was arranged in collaboration with Equal Education, which is a movement of learners, parents, teachers and community members working for quality and equality in South African education, through analysis and activism.
After the screening the children had the opportunity to address their questions to a knowledgeable panel, which included the film director, Rehad Desai, a Youth Leader from NUMSA and Naadira Munshi from SERI, the legal NGO representing the families of the strikers who were massacred on the 16th.
We are so grateful to all the wonderful people who have given of their time and money to help organise screenings of Miners Shot Down around the country.

We would like to extend our immense gratitude to two generous individuals in particular, Ralph Freese and Georgina Hamilton, who were so moved by the film that they opened their hearts and their wallets in order to ensure that others would be able to see the film too.
