The Embassy of Cuba joins South Africans in remembering the Sharpeville Massacre, one of the events that showed the world the brutal nature of the apartheid regime. Sharpeville, the imposition of a state of emergency, the arrest of thousands of black people and the banning of the ANC and PAC convinced the anti-apartheid leadership that non-violent action was not going to bring about change without armed action. The ANC and PAC were forced underground, and both parties launched military wings of their organizations in 1961. It became a turning point in the struggle of the people of South Africa and in mobilizing international solidarity for the cause of liberation and justice.
