Miners Bullied into Not Showing Up

Workers at a South African mine are being pressured into staying on strike, only thirteen percent of workers showed up to the Lomin mine today.


Miners are being intimidated into staying away from work at the South African mine where 34 people were recently shot dead by police, the owners say.

Lonmin says just 13% of workers have reported for duty on Monday and says miners have been threatened.

Hundreds of miners have reportedly gathered outside the mine, amid a heavy police presence.

Leaders of the ruling ANC are expected to discuss the deaths.
