You have got to be kidding! Do your socio-economic research before putting out disingenius requests for causes such as this! An impassioned plea based upon some nebulous subjective sense of social injustice? What wage will/should be enough? Will money make any substantive difference in the lives of people who are incapable of managing finances? Campaign for responsible government, improved education, health services, work ethic, anti-corruption, effective policing and similar positive...

Campaign for responsible government, improved education, health services, work ethic, anti-corruption, effective policing and similar positive contributors to social upliftment and you'll get my vote. Until then.... go figure

To Rachel that started this stupid cause, I invite you to please come and live in South Africa and see first hand what actually happens here and see that these poor miners are not so innocent as they seem. I dare you to come stand between a crowd like this with their okapi knives, pangas, etc and see how long you survive. Heck we can start a new survivor, because trust me you will not survive the day. You will be killed. And I am not a racist, I am a mere proud South African citizen that...

Did anyone see how they hacked the policemen and security guards to death? They should all be fired. There are plenty of people that would like to work, but don't get given the chance. Even if some of these people that are striking wanted to go work their co-workers started hitting them etc. And what these stupid people don't realise is that it's going to take them a year or more to make up the money they lost in this strike. Why don't they ask the dear government where the promised houses...

Why don't they ask the dear government where the promised houses etc are. I live in Thabazimbi and we have no water each and every day of the week because the municipality does not do the necessary upkeep to their reservoir, but do you see me going on strike to the municipal offices, no. Oh and things would probably go better if they didn't help the illegal miners go down the shaft. How many of these people do you think truly originate from South Africa? Half of them are probably from Mosambique and Zimbabwe. Thank you Marcus I agree about the farm murders. So please if you do not know what is going on, then shut up. You do not live here, but always have your mouths full of it. At least they get medical for free not like in America, so please before you say something, come live here and we'll see how much you have to say about this.

It is a shame that people could treat another human with such little respect, the police should be in question as well...:/

For these people risking life is without fear of death, to build an economic that they must profit from.We are all connected by internet so we are now our brother's keeper.
