Description SAED:APARTHEID:STRIKES:POST APRIL 7 1961 Ð Warmbaths Strikes Ð Warmbaths came to the boil for three days municipal cops and advisory board men slept in bushes in fear of their lives. Business came to a standstill in this dusty platteland town. And men fell to police bullets. And all over one man Martinus Wessel Van Coller. WarmbathÕs labour force, 5000 strong from Bela-Bela township went on strike over the reappointment of Van Coller as a Manager of Non-European Affairs. More than 40 people have been arrested following the Sunday stampede. And all over Van Coller. The entire township was non-torn on Sunday afternoon as young men went from house to house, street by street, chanting ÒVan Coller must go, we donÕt want him hereÓ. Several people ho didnÕt join the marchers were beaten up. Bela-Bela residents decided to dump all their permits at Municipal offices. Those who defied the strikers were assaulted on their return from work. Their homes were attacked. (Photograph by Dru
