Non-violent Protest Against Apartheid (Clip 2 of 2)

The second clip associated with the Twelve Disciples of Nelson Mandela lesson plan shows the re-enactment of an African National Congress-organized non-violent protest against apartheid and the South African government that occurred in 1952. Tell students that the South African government responded to every attempt to oppose the system of apartheid with increased repression and violence, therefore resistance movements decided to take up arms in the struggle. Students should individually identify a national, state or local problem that they could try to change.
