Clifton's Sheep in Wolves' Clothes

Kleurlinge... yes that is the only way I feel like describing these adherents of a false consciousness... Kleurlinge losing their minds over a sheep being slaughtered on a beach which they themselves as people are regularly being bullied to vacate and until a few decades ago were not even allowed the privilege to visit or set foot on.

One of my friends called me the other day to ask what is going on with me and why am I not saying anything on facebook anymore - not even commenting on stuff.

I have no opinion. As far as the 'Junk' status is concerned, I told him - "It's happened before and went right over the heads of the majority, including mainstream media, but the thing here is - I grew up like that - many of us come from 'Junk'.

Students protest at UWC, Cape Town, 1976 - Picture: www,sahistory.org
The idea of making the commemoration of 16 June 1976 more relevant to where we live or where we are from, no matter where that is in South Africa, has always been tugging at my sleeves.
There was especially this sense that very little was being done to honour and commemorate those young struggle heroes from the Western Cape where I live and acknowledge their part in the 1976 student uprisings.

Each year I try to look at different things that can get us a little closer to this idea and this year I have come across an initiative that very much ties in with it. Added to that, I have also found my own personal way of commemorating the youth from my own area who have lost their lives shaping our collective future.
