  • Description

    Speaking in Britain, a young black leader from South Africa has warned that violence is the only way for blacks to change the system. Mr. Tsietsi Mashinini, the 19-year-old head of the militant Soweto students, made the remarks on Wednesday (6 October) at a London press conference.

    He arrived in London a week earlier after escaping from South Africa to Botswana. According to most accounts, Mr. Mashinini planned and led the June 16 march in the township of Soweto that ignited months of racial riots and turned him into one of South Africa's most wanted men.
