The campaign follows the gory murder of a member of Solidarity, Frans Pieterse. The campaign's website (http://www.stopthemurders.co.za) describes the attack as follows:
"Mr. Pieterse was tortured for more than four hours. His attackers burnt him with boiling water, cut open his head and strangled him with a shoe-lace. The murderers also dripped molten plastic on Mr Pieterse's ten year old son, Gideon. The murder took place in the presence of Mr Pieterse's wife, Daleen, and his children Gideon and Anuscka(3)."
