INVITATION: We never give up II - #TRC20 film screening & discussion

Two documentary films produced by the Human Rights Media Centre (HMRC), We Never Give Up and We Never Give Up II, follow the stories of Khulumani Support Group members in the Western Cape, who suffered multiple atrocities during apartheid.

#TRC20 screening & discussion: We never give up II

The first film, produced in 2002, highlights the exclusion of survivors of apartheid-era gross human rights violations by the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and the battle for final reparations by those included. Ten years later, We Never Give Up II, documents the continuing struggles by survivors as they campaign for comprehensive and inclusive reparations from the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development, and from multinationals that knowingly aided and abetted apartheid.

Date: Thursday, 5 May 2016
Time: 17:30 for 18:00
Venue: The Old Fort (courtyard) at Constitution Hill, Braamfontein

This screening of the second film We Never Give Up II will be followed by a Q&A about the films and a panel discussion about the ongoing reparations battle, with the documentary's producer Shirley Gunn of HRMC and SAHA Chairperson and former TRC Commissioner, Advocate Dumisa Ntsebeza.

This screening is part of a collaborative programme of free events, entitled "The Battle Against Forgetting", taking place at Constitution Hill, Johannesburg, in April and May 2016 to mark 20 years since the first public hearings of South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) on 15 April 1996, and to raise awareness around ongoing justice and accountability issues in relation to the unfinished business of the TRC.
