DM2001060404:SAED:POLITICS:OCT1960 – Five Months Nightmare – Sharpeville how it began. After the people’s protest; after the Sharpeville killings; after 20 000 people had been detained; the goverment closed another in our countries history. There was to be no change. Apartheid and baaskap was here to stay. Like a ghastly dream: but this had really happened . The scene after the shooting. Dead and wounded litter the ground. Africans and police carry away the bodies in sacks. (Photograph by Peter Magubane, Ian Berry, G.R.Naidoo and W. Calder BAHA)
