A discussion on S. Africa @ the 2012 Conectas Human Rights Colloquium

I’m currently on a short trip to São Paulo, during which I’m attending the Conectas Human Rights Colloquium as an observer.  Today I had a short conversation with a guy from the Centre for Civil Society at the University of Kwazulu-Natal, and he said that the Marikana miners’ massacre in South Africa can be looked at as a result of class apartheid, the residual state of apartheid that results (he argued) from a wealth tax not being imposed as a part of the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s work.
