South Africa Remembers June 16 Soweto Uprising

AFRICANGLOBE - "I had never seen anything like that before. There was fire, there was smoke, there were bullets and there were police. There were students throwing stones and there was bravery. It was as if the world was coming to an end, not only apartheid. We had never seen anything like that before. You didn't know that you would wake up tomorrow and think that there would be a country. There were machine guns and helicopters. There was a revolution in the streets. White people came and started shooting left, right and centre. You did not know if they were going to come back with bombs. It was crazy. It was crazy."
