54th anniversary of Sharpeville Massacre

(Massacre occurs 21 March 1960, Sharpeville, South Africa)
Three hundred and eight years into the conquest and occupation of South Africa by a constellation of European World powers, the occupation police opens fire on a freedom march of 5000-10000 Africans in Sharpeville, murdering 69 marchers (children, women, men) and wounding nearly 200 others – a turning point in the African resistance which is consequently revamped, expanded, and intensified until liberation 34 years later
