Peace activist and country coordinator for World Beyond War, Terry Crawford- Browne, kept a diary of the inquiry into the explosion that happened in September 2018 at the Rheinmetall Denel Munition. These are his notes.
The explosion at the munitions plant in Macassar in the Western Cape took place in September 2018, taking the lives of eight workers and injuring one other.
In a public meeting held at Macassar Civic Hall on Thursday night, families of the workers slain by the September 2018 explosion at the Rheinmetall Denel munitions plant called for the company to be held accountable.
About 3,000 marchers, chanting and displaying placards, took to the streets of Cape Town in solidarity with the people of Rohingya who live “under apartheid conditions”.
