South African Police have charged 270 survivors of Marikana miners with murder of their massacred colleagues.
What a rotten logic!
Police first shot dead 34 miners who were striking for better living conditions. Those who survived are now charged of the carnage unleashed by police. If one extends this logic, Lonmin directors and Jacob Zuma too should be charged for this massacre.
Workers are being oppressed all over the world – economically, politically and now, physically as well. Those who are protesting are being murdered shamelessly and are charged for their own murders! Police could extend this logic to those who are wounded by firing and still in hospital. When the case reach court, police and Lonmin lawyers would argue that the person accused is guilty for trying to murder himself!
Rotten logic, indeed!
