Description DM2000081409:SAED:APARTHEID:JUL1976 - The day Our Kids Lost Faith - Soweto Uprising: marching Kids, in a mood common to school kids the world over, happy that they were not in class, good naturedly protesting against the use of Afrikaans a amedium of instruction at their schools. They march from Naledi Township, at the south western end of Soweto, collecting others on their route to Orlando East, the north eastern end of the vast complex. If the police had not tried to wrest the posters from the children, if they had not tried to arrest any of them, if they had not tried to set dogs on to them, if they had not fired shots, June 16 would not have been as black a day as it turned out to be.
