Consternation and concern

 

We received the news that yesterday in South Africa police shot at demostrating mine-workers and killed at least 30 of them.

 

We are horror-stricken. The darkest hours of the apartheid-era come to mind.

 

We mourn with the families and relatives and demand that the incident be investigated thoroughly and that those found responsible take the consequences.
