Our struggle for Justice for the Marikana Miners involves not only educating South Africans and people around the world about the tragic events that occurred at Marikana, but also to assist those who have suffered as a result of their loss. As part of this project,” Miners Shot Down” is affiliated with the Justice for Marikana Campaign whose activities have included collecting funds to help support those dependant on the slain miners who have had to struggle with the loss of support after the massacre. To date, The Marikana Support Campaign has dispersed R286,008.47 – food for the striking miners and R126,442 to the Widows Fund.
This money has been used to supplement the loss of income suffered by the miners and their families and has helped to provide basic needs such as food and clothing. There is still a great need for support in the area and with your continued help we can ease the losses and hardships of those still suffering from the tragic actions of the 16th of August 2012. If you would like to help or contribute to the Marikana Support Campaign, please contact Zivia Desai at firstname.lastname@example.org. Finally we would like to thank all our outreach sponsors and donors: Ford Foundation Just Films, Bertha Britdoc Connect Fund, Action Aid South Africa, Open Society Foundation for South Africa and the Heinrich Boell Foundation.
