Today Freedom Park will commemorate the Mamelodi Massacre that happened 30 years ago. On 21 November 1985, 50 000 residents of Mamelodi were shot at while protesting against high rent, the banning of funerals, and service charges. 13 protesters were killed, including a four-month-old baby.
One of the survivors of the Mamelodi Massacre, Mike Seloane, who was also instrumental in the formation of the youth organisation that organised the march, spoke to John Robbie about what happened on that day.
