Lonmin should be expropriated and placed under workers control- they and Anglo American should be forced to return all the money they have stolen through tranfer pricing over the years- They should pay each family $1 million compensation.

I think as a South African that every one have the right to Life, Good conditions and Salary.

But this does not excuse people to take the law into their own hands and start to kill people and then cry when they get killed. The famalies of those who died should get compensatoion from the trade unions that stir up violant behaviour in people and by doing so have no regard for the loss of life or damage to property. When people strike and the raises are given the Trade unions also get a raise...

When people strike and the raises are given the Trade unions also get a raise on your hard earned cash. Why must people strugle to make a living to enrich trade unions to have good salaries for them. They only think of their own raise. And they are driving luxury cars while the people supplying them with the luxury lifestile lve in poverty.

I do not agree that a Mine Worker that work under dangerous secumstances should earn less then R18 000 PER MONTH and that they should have at leased a R5 000 000-00 Providend fund paid by the company that will pay out to the families that depend on them to have a future if the person die.

Further in the Photos I have seen there are a huge lack in safety gear control and this should be properly addressed to ensure the well beeing of the workers.

I don't know why people don't think for others but for their comfort only. very selfish of those who don't care for the people who are dependent on them.

25 years ago, who would of thought an ANC lead Sth Africa government would turn their rifles on their own people, for striking for a living wage?

Gary the police officers turned their weapons on a bunch of hooligans that murdered innocent people before that. They weren't protesting peacefully. Plus this was an illegal strike that is not protected by the constitution. They police officers fired rubber bullets and tear gas at them and only after they started shooting at the police officers did they police open fire with sharp point ammunition. Like I said above.

It's criminal tha these workers are paid a pittance. Without them huge coporations would fail to exist. They deserve a decent wage and a lifestyle that brings them out of the poverty trap. If you can't get people tro work for you, you too and your families may find yourselves in their situation.Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!

Am I the only one seeing the weapons? Am I the only one that knows the police were only called in AFTER they murdered the security guards that was sent to protect the working miners? On which planet are you guys from? Since when do murderers deserve pity?
