DStv YOUTH MONTH

ABOUT

YOUTH Day, 16 June is the day that honours the deaths of many Soweto school children, a day in 1976 that changed the course of South Africa’s history. On that day the government and police were caught off guard, when the simmering anger of schoolchildren finally burst, releasing an intensity of emotion that the police controlled aggressively. SA History Online puts the number of dead at 200, far higher than the official figure of 23. DStv pays tribute.
