On August 16th 2012, 37 striking mineworkers from Lonmin Plc demanded better living conditions and an increase in their wages before being brutally gunned down by the South African police. Hundreds were injured in what is now referred to as the Marikana massacre. The documentary “Strike A Rock” brings much-needed needed focus on the lives of women touched by the giant South African mining industry. The film is a story of two South African mothers and best friends, Primrose Sonti and Thumeka Magwangqana, who formed a women’s organization, Sikhala Sonke (We Cry Together) in order to fight for social and economic justice.
