It is generally accepted that the murder of unsuspecting innocents, that is massacres, usually occurs under war conditions though there have been notable exceptions. However, in the South African context massacres have largely occurred outside a war situation and, up to the 1980s, have usually been linked to labour strikes/boycotts or political protests.
