Living In The Heart Of The Beast

This track contains excerpts from State President P.W. Botha's famous "Rubicon"speech (15 Aug 1985). It is intercut with utterances by Brigadier Visser of the South African Police.


Il brano è il risultato di un mix di alcuni passaggi di un discorso di Botha, penultimo premier del Sudafrica razzista, con alcune frasi tratte da dichiarazioni stampa del capo della polizia di quel regime, tal brigadiere J.F. Visser.

“I wish to give assurance that law-abiding people have nothing to fear as from midnight today.”

“Nothing to fear” in a particular area.
“The government has shown utmost patience especially in black townships.”
“It is the duty of the Government to ensure that a normal community life can no longer be tolerated however, I cannot ignore the insistence of all responsible South Africans who ask that those persons and institutions that cause or propagate disruption be terminated as soon as this is justified by local conditions.”
