During the last decade the apartheid regime has unleashed the full force of its repressing not only against adults but even against children. The veil of censorship which the regime keeps over its actions was pierced for a few days in Harare in September 1987. There, children gave testimony of their own experience of violence and torture, and lawyers, doctors, social workers, religious leaders and parents spoke of what they had themselves seen of the treatment of children.
