Giant corporations have no conscience at all, and far more power than a handful of workers. That is why we must all band together to support people in this kind of situation. Organise and mobilize for the good of all!

Is was shocking to think that black South African Billionaire/Millionaire Fatcats suffer from such amnesia that they would totally evade their past from their consciousness and behave more unreasonably and glutonuous than the old devils of a former Aprtheid draconian state. We as South African's have been through quite a bit historically and always offer to assist the rest of Africa and the world without thorough Economic plannng to free the African.

Is was shocking to think that black South African Billionaire/Millionaire Fatcats suffer from such amnesia that they would totally evade their past from their consciousness and behave more unreasonably and glutonuous than the old devils of a former Aprtheid draconian state. We as South African's have been through quite a bit historically and always offer to assist the rest of Africa and the world without thorough Economic plannng to free the African. Some who benefit from Lonmin should have had their consciousness removed in order to sleep at night. It has been happening since this "Democracy" started, whites and a few fortumnate blacks eating the spoils of the much anticipated Liberation. Lyle

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

For me this is all about bringing awareness of world social issues. I am sure that there is much more to this then meets the eye, however that doesn't change the fact of poor salaries.

I am no racist, on the Earth all humans are equal, I respect that. It is a sin that any where in our world today people have to die, because of wages. It is a sin that is irreparable, a life taken can not be restored. They died for better working conditions and better living standards caused by the exploitation of employees by companies , concerns, firms and corperations, that gorge themselves on profit. "What is a life worth today?"

This makes me so sad. It is also inhumane. Let us pray to the Lord that people will open their eyes and see the pain and suffering in our world today. Reminds me of the song "feed the world album". I love that song!

Diana dear, this is the same old, same old..Giant corporations have been doing this forever..screwing and abusing workers everywhere..they amalgamate, takeover, layoff, bigger workload for the employees and their ultimate success story is FAT PROFITS..the CEO gets his 6 figure salary/bonuses while the lower ranks get peanuts..ref. to the article, look at the price of Gold, Platinum see how they have skyrocketed while wages remain at poverty levels..and to top it all it's a commodity traded...

Tell Lonmin that the 22% increase is not enough and that the increase should not be at the cost of the work of other workers but that it should come from reducing dividend payouts to shareholders and a radical reduction in the income of senior managers.
