Land Or Death

I'm not sure whose death it is to be. I took this photo some time ago in Cape Town, of Black Land First, who since have been propelled (or have propelled themselves) into the headlines. In my personal experience, they seem to me to be a very small, very radical group -- yet small or not, the shadow of our neighbour Zimbabwe (expropriation of land without compensation) casts a shadow. OBSERVATION: Interestingly, I am a White who owns land, and my wife is a Black who is involved in a land claim. Her clan claims restitution. (Although I use them here, I feel uncomfortable with the terms "Black" and "White").
