disgusting!

It is immoral to work anyone as a slave! The police that were killed are doing there job to keep the peace for everyone, the demonstrators should be allowed to speak & be heard. Murder of any kind never solves the problem, but to only create more havoc & differences. Give them their fair share! They are the ones living & dying to see a change.

Improvement of working conditions and workers wages is long overdue.

Johannes Mosehla You are right, the police had a right to defend themselves, so glad you mentioned that. The ANC is to busy lining their own pockets to worry about the workers, unless it is election time then they promise the sun and the moon ... but never deliver

justice for the mine workers, they should get good wages and they should be provided with good working conditions.

Nel mese in cui si commemorano le tante vittime di Marcinelle, c'è anche chi muore non per mano della miniera, ma delle multinazionali... e tutto alla luce del sole.

The miners certainly should be paid better than the pittance they receive currently. Lonmin exploits the dreadful unemployment level in South Africa by hiring these workers for a pittance. To work at the mine they live in a township with little running water and shared toilets. But that is only half the story. The miners, frustrated by the lack of real action on their behalf by their union, were enticed into more radical action by a rival union. It should be remembered that the SA police did...

The miners certainly should be paid better than the pittance they receive currently. Lonmin exploits the dreadful unemployment level in South Africa by hiring these workers for a pittance. To work at the mine they live in a township with little running water and shared toilets. But that is only half the story. The miners, frustrated by the lack of real action on their behalf by their union, were enticed into more radical action by a rival union. It should be remembered that the SA police did not kill the striking miners for demonstrating: they were facing down a mob that had already killed workers who did not agree with them as well as police officers. A mob armed with spears and stolen police firearms. The bottom line is violence created by inequality. Lonmin is partly responsible, but so also is the government that, for 18 post-apartheid years, has failed to deliver services and employment prospects.

My father & grandfather were miners. It isn't easy, even with reasonable pay. The conditions described are awful, & I am appalled. The ANC is no longer the voice of these people.
