Asa Anpu discusses the environmental, biological and psychological effects of pervasive toxic white suburban trash dumps and mining tailings in the black townships of South Africa.

Anpu is the Director of the Better Living Association, an organization working to improve health, economic and living conditions for African working class people in South Africa.

He recounts a struggle waged by Sharpesville residents for the restoration of electricity and the expulsion of white missionaries at this year's commemoration of the March 21, 1960 Sharpesville Massacre.

He discusses the latest initiative of the Better Living Association, Project Thuthukani, organizing residents of Evaton West, a township on the outskirts of Johannesburg, to remove the garbage dumps, separate recyclable trash and turn the land into community food gardens.

The People's War radio show is produced by WBPU 96.3 FM "Black Power 96" in St. Petersburg, Florida. It is hosted by Dr. Matsemela Odom and Muambi Tangu, bringing an African Internationalist perspective to the important issues of our world.
