Outside Sharpeville police Station. A curious crowd. Police opened fire. Everyone flees. Some smiling thinking blanks are being used.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. (Photograph by Ian Berry BAHA)
