Singer, actor and activist, Harry Belafonte
Nearly 40 miners were shot dead by the South African police service at the Marikana Massacre in 2012 - the single most lethal use of force by South African security forces against civilians since 1960.
Miners Shot Down reveals the truth about what really happened and the deep fault lines it has exposed in South Africa's nascent democracy. It’s a rallying call for justice for the miners and their families.
