Displaced on Africa Day

TAC calls on the UN





On May 22nd 2008, some 400 Mozambicans boarded buses that would take them to Park Station where they would catch trains to return home. Their stories presented disturbing accounts of persecution and fear. Some were literally leaving South Africa with the shirts on their backs. What emerged were promises to return to this country for lack of work prospects elsewhere, while others spoke of a desire to avenge what had happened. These pictures were taken at the refugee camp in Primrose, east of Johannesburg.
