2 year anniversary of the Marikana massacre – watch the film

For this weekend only, you can watch Miners Shot Down on YouTube. This film is incredible, enraging, painful, but most of all necessary. It is necessary to watch and reflect on our own relations to capital. It is necessary to watch and reflect on culpability, accountability, state violence, and the state of our freedom. Please watch it.

Lizl Morden looks at sports gender inequality.
