Amandla! Forum 01/11: Business as Usual After Marikana Book Launch
Join us on Thursday, 1 November 2018, from 18h00 at AIDC (129 Rochester Road, Observatory) for the book launch of Business as Usual After Marikana and a discussion with editors Jakob Krameritsch and Maren Grimm as well as an update on the Campaign to Dismantle Corporate Power from coordinator Kea Seipato.
“This publication, which starts by examining the long-term business relations between BASF and Lonmin, goes on to drill deeper into the hard rock
of the persistent structures of inequality. By doing so we will understand that Marikana is not the tragic failure of an otherwise improving economic system but rather a calculated form of collateral damage.”
– BISHOP JO SEOKA, FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE SOUTH AFRICAN COUNCIL OF CHURCHES
