The Trojan Horse Massacre, Cape Town South Africa, October 1985

June 5, 2014

CBS Archival footage of the shooting taken by Chris Everson in Thornton Road, Athlone, Cape Town, South Africa on 15 October 1985.

I don’t like “rehashing” the past too much* (as I learn about uploading videos), yet it’s a lesson we can learn for the present and the future… throughout the world.


“The past is another country… just as life in the townships was/is (??)  another country.”


* As happened at Tiananman Square in China, never to be repeated (nor forgotten), yet it, “man’s inhumanity to man, woman and child”  is still going on in numerous places like Congo, Syria and Ukraine today!


Ex Afrika semper aliquid novi

”There is always something new out of Africa.”

“Africa always brings forth something new.”

– Plinius sr. (23-79 A.D.) in Naturalis Historia
