  •      The South African Revolution
  • Stage 0: Acceptance
  • Stage 1: Complaining
  •                        By: Jacob F. Rivera
  •              Stage 2: Protest
  • In 1948, the National Party came into control and a new government policy was implemented. The policy, called apartheid, would then increase segregation between whites and nonwhites, as well as causing economic exploitation to the natives and other nonwhite race. It is unspecified why the South Africans accepted this injustice. (Pink Sheet, South Africa, Apartheid,2nd Par.)
  • Stage 3: Revolution
  • After an unspecified amount of years, nonwhite people of South Africa start complaining about the inequality they experiance, such as segregated public spaces, being unable to have an interracial marriage, and not being able to vote or participate in government matters. The birth of several progressive groups were born, such as the ANC and the PAC.(Green & Purple) 
  • Stage 4: Recovery
  • There have been several protests during the revolution that people demonstrated at to voice their concerns and finally be heard by their government. However we shall only look at two very well known protests: the protest of Sharpeville of 1960, and the children protest of Soweto in 1976.(Green & Purple)
  • No protests have as much infamy as the Sharpeville and Soweto protests. In 1960,government issued police went and shot, wounded, and killed many peaceful demonstrators. On 1976, black school children protesting were fired upon by police, killing two. Along with riots, over 500 people, mainly black Africans were killed.(Green, Pink, Purple) 
  • After the revolution, a new constitution was drawn up, allowing Africans to have many more right, such as being able to vote. For the first time ever, South Africans were allowed to vote. The first president of the new Democracy was Nelson Mandela, a leader of the ANC.(Green, Pink, Purple)
