At the moment solidarity is of topical interest more than ever. In the news we
hear of the decline of the welfare state, of cuts in social services. We discuss about
our solidarity with the United States of America with regard to the war in Iraq.
There are shows on television to collect money for poor countries in the third
world or for post-war reconstruction. These are all forms of solidarity. But what
really is solidarity?
This paper wants to have a closer look at the term 'solidarity', its nuances and
its conditions. Solidarity depends on the society and on the time. As an example I
would like to examine the term on the basis of Athol Fugard's Township Plays.
The Township Plays are: No-good Friday (1958), Nongogo (1959), The Coat
(1966), Sizwe Bansi is Dead (1972) and The Island (1973). These five plays were
written under the conditions of the oppressive apartheid system which
characterized South Africa's politics since 1948. During the following years the
Whites oppressed the Blacks in a very cruel way, cut back their rights and made
them live and die under miserable circumstances. In such an inhumane situation
solidarity grows very fast and reaches its peak. I would now like to examine how
solidarity is described in the five South African plays, in which situations it
occurs. Furthermore, it may be interesting to look who acts in solidarity with
whom and in which situations there is perhaps even a lack of solidarity. These
shall be the main aspects of my paper.
