​Almost five years after the massacre, the battle for Marikana justice continues


The shareholders of BASF, the largest chemical producer in the world and a major buyer of the platinum produced by mining giant Lonmin, descended on Mannheim, Germany, on May 12 for their annual meeting.

Once again a South African delegation travelled thousands of kilometres to urge BASF to ensure that its supply chains meet the “social responsibility” they claim to uphold.
