After the people's protest; after the Sharpville 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. Two grief stricken young women being taken home after the one in the middle had viewed her husband's body twister into a lifeless bulk by police gun-fire, opposite the Sharpeville police station.
