Organizer/Author
It was like a scene from the old racist apartheid South Africa. But it was last week that more than 40 striking platinum miners at the Lonmin mine in Marikana South Africa, were gunned down by police at the behest of the company and the South African ANC government. The miners were striking for a living wage, and fighting to build a militant union of their own choosing. Just the day before, the chief of police vowed to stop the strike. They tried to stop the strike and the workers’ struggle with blood and bullets.

Protest the slaughter of South African miners by the police on the orders of the ANC government!

Solidarity with the Marikana miners and their demands for better wages!

Defend the right of the miners to have a union of their own choosing!

Build the movement of workers, from South Africa to the U.S. and around the world. Over! (An injury to one is an injury to all! Fight for decent jobs, decent pay and for militant unions controlled by the workers themselves!)

Come to the rally

Friday, Aug. 24, 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.
