Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

BHISHO MASSACRE ANNIVERSARY in South Africa

HERE lie heroes and heroines of the 1992 Bhisho Massacre, in which 28 people were killed on that dreadful Monday.

These were the words of struggle stalwart Ronnie Kasrils at the 20th Bhisho Massacre anniversary, commemorated at the Bhisho Stadium on Friday, 7 September.

Kasrils narrated the events of that day with tears rolling down his cheeks. "I remember very well that we had permission for the sit-in at Bhisho Stadium that day, but we all don't know what happened . We heard gun fire just as we were crossing the border of Ciskei," he said.

"The march was peaceful; we never carried any weapons and dangerous things with us. All we wanted was the government to make Ciskei part of the Republic of South Africa as it was a homeland."  Read more...

The Bisho massacre occurred on 7 September 1992 in Bisho, in the nominally independent homeland of Ciskei in South Africa. Twenty-eight African National Congress supporters and one soldier were shot dead by the Ciskei Defence Force during a protest march when they attempted to enter Bisho (now renamed to Bhisho) to demand its reincorporation into South Africa during the final years of apartheid.
