fantasy and reality in corporate propaganda
The photo above is taken from the web site of Lonmin Mining. It purports to show the many happy workers who labor in the platinum mines they run. That’s the fantasy they want outsiders to believe.
The reality is shown by the photos taken of our fallen comrades, the miners killed by ANC cops.
- autopsies show the majority of the dead were shot in the back while fleeing police gunfire
- now the South African State has charged the strikers with murder for the death of their comrades killed by cops.
- The mines are dangerous with the danger of rock falls crushing workers and the dust caused diseases silicosis and tuberculosis.
- pay in the mines is about 4000 Rand per month or in US dollars $475 per month.
- Build solidarityy with South African workers!
