Stoning while necklacing. A common site of mob justice in South Africa

This shot is from photographer, Greg Marinovich, a South African who was covering the beginning of the anti-Apartheid movement in the country. Marinovich's photo, although brutal, illustrated what is actually happening in the hostiles throughout the country. The Apartheid government was hiding and covering up most of the issues and problems that were taking place throughout the poor black communities and photos like this helped expose what was really happening.
