#RememberMarikana Trending on Social Media

The trend #RememberMArikana is currently trending today on social media as South Africa remembers those who lost their lives in Marikana four years ago

 

On this day the country remembers and mourns the death of thirty four breadwinners who died on this day in Marikana.

The miners were killed by police during a protest over a minimum wage of R12 500 instead of the R4000 to R5000 they were paid each month.

Today social media is buzzing with messages of reflection in remembrance of the incident that happened four years ago at a platinum mine in Marikana, North West Province.

Ordinary South Africans, social activists, political commentators and even celebrities are all contributing into making the #RememberMarikana trend and most of all, understanding its significance.
