South Africa's Illegal Gold Mines
 
10:37
In the 1970s, South Africa was the world's most prolific exporter of gold. Over the years, industrial decline has seen widespread closures of the mines across the country. However, Johannesburg sits on the biggest gold basin ever discovered. It's perhaps not surprising that many of these abandoned mines have seen a recent boom in illegal mining activity. Everyday, hundreds of illegal gold miners, known as Zama Zamas, descend kilometers deep beneath the surface. The miners often spend weeks underground, toiling away at the country's untapped gold reserves. Observers have suggested that illegal mining is now so widespread, black-market gold arguably supports the communities once subsistent on the very same mines they worked in before they shut down. The lack of policing in the mines has seen the practice go on largely unabated. However, in the absence of law enforcement, the extensive network of abandoned mines beneath the region has become an arena to deadly gang warfare between rival factions. VICE News visited illegal mines near Johannesburg, to meet the Zama Zamas risking life and limb everyday in the violent struggle for South Africa's illegal gold.

South African Mine Union, AMCU, Sibanye Gold settle on higher wage
 
03:32
South African Mine Union, AMCU is once again ruffling feathers in the country's mining industry. The Union accepted a wage offer from one of the country's big gold mining companies. But it agreed to do so outside of the collective bargaining council. The South African Chamber of Mines usually negotiates with unions on behalf of the gold mining sector. However during negotiations last year, AMCU refused to sign a wage agreement, while the other three main unions went ahead. But over the weekend AMCU accepted a new offer by Sibanye Gold. Sumitra Nydoo has the details.

Chinese investors in court over a phosphate mining licence
 
01:33
Two Chinese nationals are before the Commercial Court fighting over an exploration licence to mine phosphate at the Sukuru Mineral Reserve in Tororo district. Fang Min seeks to recover over 12 million US dollars from her former business partner LV Weidong. Both Fang Min and LV Weidongo reportedly first entered into a joint venture and formed a company- that government granted a phosphate mining license. However, Fang Min claims that without her consent, Weidong transferred the duo's mining licence to Guanzou Dong Song which now solely manages the mines. Fang Min now wants court to order LV Weidong to compensate her for losses suffered since 2016, and an order cancelling the exploration and mining license.#NTVNews Subscribe to Our Channel For more news visit http://www.ntv.co.ug Follow us on Twitter http://www.twitter.com/ntvuganda Like our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/NTVUganda

What is required for all of us is we have to learn from what has happened over the last 24 hours. There has to be a continuous commitment to improve on safety and health, at Harmony, but also in the whole of the industry." 7. Various of miners dancing and singing, celebrating their rescue STORYLINE: The last of 3,200 miners trapped for more than 24 hours in a deep mine were brought safely to the surface late on Thursday, officials said, ending one of South Africa's biggest ever rescue operations. The final workers emerged from the Elandsrand gold mine just before 9 p.m. (2000GMT), to applause from their waiting colleagues, and celebratory singing and dancing ensued. The miners became trapped after a pipe of pressurised air exploded and crashed into a shaft, cutting off electricity to the main elevator. Despite the long ordeal, only one person was treated for dehydration, said a spokeswoman for mine owner, Harmony Gold Mining Company, and there were no other casualties. She said the final group of 45 miners were exhausted but otherwise in good health. The rescue operation had dragged on for longer than initially expected. Some of those stranded more than a mile (1.6 kilometres) underground had gone down on Tuesday for the night shift in the Elandsrand mine. Joyful reunions were mixed with anger, fear and renewed concern about safety standards in a country that is the world's largest gold producer. The trapped workers were brought to the surface in a second, smaller cage in another shaft that can hold about 75 miners at a time, about half the normal passenger capacity, so the rescue operation progressed slowly. During the ordeal, relatives stood outside the mine's offices, complaining that they had not been given enough information about their loved ones. The workers had been near a ventilation shaft and were given water and food. The mine owner and South Africa's minerals and energy minister vowed to improve safety in one of the country's most important industries after the accident prompted allegations the industry cut safety corners and did not properly maintain the mine. Buyelwa Sonjica, South African Minister of Minerals and Energy, also praised all those involved in the rescue mission. "I am very very grateful to them. On behalf of the country, their families and government, I am saying to them 'bravo'," she said. Patrice Motsepe, Non-Executive Chairman of the Harmony Gold Mining Company admitted there were lessons to be learned. "What is required for all of us is we have to learn from what has happened over the last 24 hours. There has to be a continuous commitment to improve on safety and health, at Harmony but also in the whole of the industry," he said. The union threatened unspecified industrial action if its safety demands were not met. In a message to mining bosses, it said it would "hit their pockets big time in the near future."

SOUTH AFRICA: MINERS CRITICISE UK GOLD SELL-OFF
 
03:01
English/Nat Gold sales by the Bank of England came under fire today from South African miners, mine owners and the government. The government accused Britain of breaking an undertaking to consult it before going ahead with it's gold auction. All parties are demanding that further gold sales are stopped and proposed sales by the International Monetary Fund are cancelled. The auction of gold reserves has brought about a 20-year low in the gold price and potentially devastating effects on gold producing countries like South Africa. In Pretoria hundreds of gold miners protested against the expected closure of the 160-year-old E-R-P-M mine which will cost thousands of jobs. And the country's National Union of Mine workers has enlisted the help of sister organisations worldwide in a bid to prevent further gold sales by Britain and proposed sales by the International Monetary Fund. The union claims that "at least 800-thousand jobs" are under threat as a direct result of the gold sales --- the announcements of which sent markets reeling as the price of the yellow metal went into a tail-spin and plunged to record lows. It has already asked the International Chemical, Energy and Mining Federation, the American Mine workers Union and the American Federation of Labour to urge the International Monetary Fund to rethink its planned sale of 10 (m) million ounces of gold. An approach could also be made to the National Union of Miners in the United Kingdom and the British Trades' Union Congress to put pressure on Britain's Prime Minister Tony Blair and his Labour government to abort further auctions of its gold reserves. SOUNDBITE: (English) "As our colonisers, they are inflicting more damage on us than help." SUPER CAPTION: Gwede Mantashe, NUM secretary general Tuesday's British auction of 25 tons of gold resulted in the metal's price sliding to a fresh 20 year low of 255-point-25 U-S dollars an ounce. The price of spot gold has fallen 12 percent in the last two months. South Africa is still the biggest producer of gold but it is also the most expensive with many of its mines in a "marginal" state even before the recent gold price collapse. The South African gold industry's role in the domestic economy has been in steady decline since the early 1980s when it accounted for well over half the country's exports. Today that figure is less than 20 percent. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The South African government find both incomprehensible and unacceptable the insensitivity of the British government and its monetary authorities towards the pleas of gold-producing countries, on the handling of the matter of gold sales. This behaviour, and the decisions of other industrialised countries and the IMF on the public handling of this matter is having the effect of defeating the very objectives that they profess to pursue." SUPER CAPTION: Joel Netshitenzhe, South African government spokesman The Chamber of Mines of South Africa condemned the method and timing of the gold sales and warned that it could cost the industry at least 12-thousand jobs. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We'd also be seeking to consolidate our position with the other Highly Indebted Poor Countries who are gold producers in order to make sure that we can speak with one voice on this matter." SUPER CAPTION: Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, South African Minister of Minerals and Energy Affairs It estimates that the combination of planned job losses and further vulnerable jobs will result in about 800-thousand people being exposed to the possibility of no subsistence income. This does not include those jobs at risk from companies which either supply or service the gold mining industry.

Tilt down striking mine worker, removing his helmet wiping his brow, and mimicking digging with a shovel 11. Cutaway of dancing mine worker STORYLINE: Thousands of striking miners protested in Johannesburg on Tuesday, over safety and working conditions in South African mines - where officials estimate one miner dies nearly every day. Around 40-thousand miners joined the colourful march on the Chamber of Mines, in South Africa's capital on Tuesday, many singing and holding brightly coloured banners in support of the Union. "The stronger the Union, safer the workplace," one banner read. One striking miner told AP Television "every year there are fatalities, every year." The one day strike was called by the 270-thousand member National Union of Mineworkers to draw attention to safety concerns in a country where the rate of deaths among miners underground is increasing. Many miners were transported in from rural areas by bus, according to the employer's organisation that includes industry leaders AngloGold Ashanti, Gold Fields, Harmony Gold, Anglo Platinum, Impala Platinum and Lonmin. The miners were expected to present Chamber officials with a memorandum outlining their health and safety concerns during the march. South African President, Thabo Mbeki, has ordered that all mines undergo safety audits and around 50 mines were shut down by the government in one week, recently, due to unsafe working conditions. Chamber officials did not comment on the strike directly, but pointed to a joint statement released last week, after a meeting with the National Union of Mineworkers. The two sides agreed at the meeting the protest strike would be on a "no work, no pay basis." The statement acknowledged "there is much to be done to drastically reduce the number of accidents and fatalities on the mines." In October, 3,200 miners from Harmony Gold, were trapped more than a mile underground for two days after a pressurised air pipe exploded. The miners escaped unscathed, but the accident brought international attention to South Africa's mine safety issues. As of the end of September, some 226 miners had been killed on the job, the mineworkers' union said, compared to 199 in all of 2006. The problems, compounded by the country having the deepest mines in the world, often are seen as a hangover from the former white apartheid regime, which was seen as unconcerned about the safety, poor pay and dire living conditions of black miners.

SOUTH AFRICA: MEMORIAL SERVICE FOR DEAD MINE WORKERS
 
03:33
English/Nat In the wake of South Africa's latest mining disaster in which 104 miners were killed last week, international experts are discussing ways in which to improve safety on mines and in factories. The international conference hosted by the National Occupational Safety Association will continue discussing the issue today (Thursday). Yesterday (Wednesday) miners and the families of the dead gather on mine property for a memorial service. It's exactly a week since the Vaal Reefs Gold Mine accident in which a mine locomotive plunged down a shaft and crushed a lift carrying the night shift workers. President Nelson Mandela, who visited the scene on Monday, called on the public to observe a national day of mourning yesterday (Wednesday.) Since gold was discovered in South Africa in the 1880s the industry has relied on a cheap labour force, mainly black men from the rural areas of the country and from neighbouring states. While conditions have improved slowly over the years, it took the installation of Mandela's government last May to give the mining industry a friendly nudge in the direction of better worker relations. An inquiry set up by Mandela to investigate the disaster needs to examine who or what was to blame for the accident. But the focus is very firmly on ensuring better safety on the mines. SOUND BITE: "It definitely is a tragedy for South Africa. We at Nosa must look at ourselves and have a look at when the findings of the Vaal Reefs tragedy come out. We need to have a look at what happened and see if we ourselves can improve in anyway possible to pre-empt such things happening again." SUPER CAPTION: Bryan Keague, operations manager of the National Occupational Safety Association SOUND BITE: "It was terrible and we are sorry that people died and I think if stricter measures were taken the accident could have been averted." SUPER CAPTION: Boney Mogotsi, occupational health officer The accident came at a time too when the world's largest gold producer seems to be losing it's grip on the market - the gold mines shares on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange were down 39% as compared to the same time last year. The main reason is that South Africa is still mining the same mines as it was 100 years ago and miners are now having to go deeper into the ground to get the gold. The result has been a rise in labour costs and a drop in safety standards. Clearly the mine owners must take a long hard look at safety as they try to negotiate the minefield of creeping competition even within Africa. SOUND BITE: "Well, the mine disaster actually puts us in a position we should emphasize the need for safety and I believe that probably if the safety was viewed with concern, it should be taking that mine disaster could not probably have happened." SUPER CAPTION: Dr William Sakari, director of Occupational Health Safety Services, Kenya. Political changes and a more labour-friendly government means that this mine disaster will be thoroughly probed. South Africa's Mineral and Energy Affairs Minister Pik Botha visited the mine last week and has added his voice to the call for an enquiry. SOUND BITE: "It is obvious that there will have to be a very proper and thorough investigation when this matter - it is impossible at least for me to in the time that I have here - it is too complex. We will have to get a very proper enquiry." SUPER CAPTION: Pik Botha, South Africa's Minister of Mineral and Energy Affairs. President Nelson Mandela visited the mine himself on Monday but steered clear of blaming either workers or management. He simply went personally to investigate and to offer his condolences to the workers.

South Africa - Miners March
 
02:55
Thousands of mineworkers marched on the Department of Mineral and Energy Affairs in Johannesburg on Saturday morning (16/7), demanding an improvement in safety conditions at work. At the front of the march, organised by the National Union of Mineworkers, were scores of disabled miners in wheelchairs. They were pushed by colleagues in central Johannesburg, to the department offices in Braamfontein. Most had been paralysed in mining accidents and several had lost one or more limbs. Others hobbled on crutches and walking sticks. The march took place on the eve of a Government-appointed commission of inquiry into the health and safety regulations in the mining industry. According to union figures, black mineworkers who spend 20 years underground face a 1 in 30 chance of being killed in a mining accident, and a 1 in 2 chance of being permanently disabled. Last year, 578 mineworkers died in mine accidents. A total of 8532 were seriously injured last year. Meanwhile, South Africa's largest labour federation demanded on Saturday that President Nelson Mandela's government back workers in disputes with employers acording to a Sunday Times report. Sam Shilowa, leader of the 1.2 million-strong Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU), made his plea as the country faces its largest strike since the all-race elections in April. More than 15,000 workers at retail giant Pick 'n Pay will stop work Tuesday following the breakdown of wage negotiations and outbreaks of violence between strikers and police at stores in the Johannesburg region.

SOUTH AFRICA: GOLD MINING  (V)
 
01:22
English/Nat VOICED BY: L. BATES International gold sales have recently plunged the price of the precious metal to a 22-year low. Despite protests from all quarters the sales are set to continue leaving the future of tens of thousands of South African miners hanging in the balance. This week South Africa's second largest gold miner, Gold Fields Ltd, announced that a strike against retrenchments at one of its mines may spread to all other sites. (0.02) All is not well in the gold mining industry. (0.06) With the market in free fall, there is little demand for the precious metal. (0.12) A mile underground the ramifications of the market collapse continues to reverberate. (0.17) South African miners have been hardest hit by this dramatic down turn. (0.22) Across the country mines have been forced to close as workers go on strike protesting about the imminent lay off of thousands of miners. (0.31) "I think at this point in time we are really in a catastrophic position because the gold price has declined tremendously and that can cost our jobs." Sabata Moeane, Gold Miner (0.52) As industrialised nations sell off their gold reserves the price of bullion continues to fall. (0.58) Recent protests by miners seems to have fallen on deaf ears with Britain announcing it will sell more than one hundred tons of gold by the end of the year. (1.08) Gold is no longer the glamour metal it once was. (1.12) It is estimated that if the price remains below two hundred and sixty dollars an ounce it could mean the end of some eighty thousand mining jobs.

AFRICA: TANZANITE RARE GEMSTONES
 
03:37
English/Nat Dubbed the "Millennium Stone" by the exclusive New York jewellery stone Tiffany's, Tanzanite is a velvety-blue rare gemstone found only in a small corner of Africa. It's fast becoming the stone to be seen wearing, and at the right time too. As the United Nations begins harsh sanctions against the sale of so-called "blood diamonds" which help fuel civil wars in countries like Sierra Leone and Congo, the conscience of jewellery consumers is slowly turning away from diamonds. Discovered in 1967 by a Masai warrior at the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, the precious stone was then named Tanzanite by the vice president of Tiffany's after its country of origin. This rare gem is growing in popularity and is reported to be the second most popular gemstone in the United States alone. This, and the fact that it is found only in a square kilometre near Arusha in Tanzania means that the world's supply is expected to be completely decimated within 20 years. SOUNDBITE: (English) "What makes Tanzanite so amazing is that it really is a geological phenomenon. It should never really have occured in the first place, but it did occur. And only this one deposit on this entire planet that is known, makes it more than a thousand times rarer than diamonds and certainly within the next 15 to 20 years, there will be no Tanzanite mined." SUPER CAPTION: Mike Nunn, AFGEM Director of Public Relations The current value of the coloured gemstone industry standing at 10 (b) billion U-S dollars per annum, is equivalent in value to that of the diamond industry. SOUNDBITE: (English) "If you compare a diamond and the marketing of diamonds with that of Tanzanite then it's very obvious that diamonds have been marketed over a much longer period, it's been known for a much longer time. Tanzanite was only recently discovered in the Sixties so the marketing for diamonds has been going on for a very long time, whereas, Tanzanite, which is a much rarer mineral in geological terms, the marketing process is not sufficient as for that of diamond." SUPER CAPTION: Dr Reyno Scheepers, Professor of Geology, University of Stellenbosch A South African mining company called AFGEM has recently acquired two-thirds of the mining rights, and hence controls the world's production of the stone within the formal market sector. The company is expected to launch The Tanzanite Foundation on a global level in March 2001, which will act as a custodian to this precious gemstone and help insure that smugglers do not stand to profit from its sale. Mystics believe the stone has properties which uplifts and opens the heart. Geologists on the other hand say that Tanzanite came into being when calcium aluminium and silica reacted with vanadium millions of years ago, making Tanzania a geological phenomenon. The source of its mesmerising colour is that Tanzanite is trichoic. This means that it shows different colours when viewed in different directions. One direction is blue, another purple, and another bronze, adding subtle depths to the colour. When Tanzanite is found in the ground, the bronze colour dominates. However, with gentle heating, the cutter can watch the blue colour bloom and deepen in the stone. These may not be diamonds, but don't expect them to come cheap. These rings go for about 8-thousand U-S dollars each.

Poisoned By The Gold Rush
 
14:23
Gold is quickly becoming the new cocaine in Colombia. The precious metal is now the currency of choice for individuals and groups engaging in illicit trade in the South American country. That's because unlike cocaine, it's perfectly legal to carry gold, and unlike money, it's virtually untraceable. But there are some major side-effects of Colombia's new gold rush that locals are curiously quiet about: erectile dysfunction and brain damage. VICE News correspondent Monica Villamizar travelled to the Antioquia, Colombia, a hotbed of illegal gold mining, to investigate an unprecedented surge in impotence and neurological problems that experts are attributing to mercury, an essential gold-digging element.

Mining the Golden Mountains of Suriname With An Ex-Rebel Leader
 
41:34
Gold is everywhere in Suriname, from political power to what the locals wear on their fingers, the effects of gold mining seep into all aspects of society. The industry is a necessary source of income for many Surinamese, but it's also destroying the environment, bad for public health, and rife with corruption. VICE Netherlands went to Suriname to see how gold is intertwined with everyday life in the country. They ride along with 'Jungle' Ronnie Brunswick - an ex-rebel leader who waged a violent civil war but is now a successful businessman, owning thousands of hectares of gold mining land. VICE Netherlands also witnessed the dangers of mercury, which is used widely in the recovery of gold, and visited Benz Village, where everything in life is paid for with gold.

War endangers future of coal mining in rebel-controlled industrial heartland
 
03:15
Lines of workers gather outside Donetsk's Chelyuskintsev coal mine waiting to start their shifts, despite artillery fire around them. The entrance to the pit is guarded by armed rebels and pro-separatist graffiti adorn the fences nearby. Vitaly Khristich is one of hundreds of workers at this and other local mines that go down in the pit every day, braving the fighting outside and being unpaid for months. Without them the shaft would get flooded and could simply be lost as an energy source. One kilometre up, above ground, Ukrainian government firing positions dot the fields around. About 55 percent of all coalmines in Ukraine are situated in a relatively small area controlled by pro-Russian rebels who declared independence in May and have been fighting government troops for months. The frontline that separates the warring parties cuts off the mineral wealth of the Donetsk region from energy capacities, endangering the future of the region and the energy security of Ukraine. Heavy fighting and electricity blackouts have paralyzed the work of dozens of mines in the region, Ukraine's industrial heartland. The rebels threaten to stop sending coal to Kiev, while the Ukrainian government could cut off the electricity supply generated at a power station on the other side of the frontline. Many separatist combatants in Donetsk are local miners, and the pro-rebel sentiment among this workforce is strong. Miners like Khristich don't hide their sympathies. "Coal will be ours and Donetsk People's Republic will take care of it. It will be used where it's needed, but not to oligarchs, who made money on this coal," he said. The Chelyuskintsev mine is government owned but who actually runs it is anyone's guess. Despite the war it has been shipping all the coal it produces to the state-owned distributor, but it is not receiving government financing. Around 100 Chelyuskintsev miners have joined the fighters and others said they will vote in the November 2 rebel election as long as there is no heavy fighting outside. Mine director Vasily Dancha says he was "advised" to take down the Ukrainian flag a few months ago. But he would not fly the rebel flag, either. Whoever pays the miners will get their flag on a pole, he says. Coal output in the Donetsk region dropped by 20 percent in January-September compared to the same period last year, to 22 million tons, forcing the Ukrainian government to consider importing it from abroad - an unprecedented step for this energy-rich country. Kiev has already contracted to buy 1 million tons from South Africa. Dancha says workers want to work and know how to make the mine productive so the profit prospects are good as long as there's investment. "All coal mines have to be renovated, so they can provide materials to raise production of metal, electricity and chemicals," he says. The troubles in the east could threaten the mining industry and livelihoods across the country. Ukraine is already experiencing a 30 percent coal shortage at power stations, the country's Energy Minister said earlier this month. Ukrainian officials were concerned by reports that there rebels were thinking about starting to export the coal, to the Crimean Peninsula, which was annexed by Russia in March. Rebels may threaten to stop shipping coal to Kiev, but the Ukrainian authorities hold cards of their own. Most coalmines in rebel-held areas are powered by a hydro-electric plant in the town of Kurakhove, which is under government control. "If they keep it," Dancha said, "it will be an important leverage for them to use." The plant in Kurakhove in turn runs on coal from the Donetsk mines, a neat illustration of the indissoluble mutual reliance both sides will find hard to overcome.

It''s a very difficult job, and we think that where we have packers in the retail industry who are earning more than mine workers, it is just unfair." Johannesburg - 29 July 2011 10.

SOUNDBITE (English) Tony Twine, senior economist at the Econometrix group: "The fears that any cut in supply from South Africa, or any of the other producers in the world, might result in gold price rising, is probably unfounded, and that does not mean that the gold price will not rise, but be propelled rather by hedging activities in a time of great financial and economic uncertainty in major economies around the world." Kloof Gold Mine, Westonaria, Gauteng province, southwest of Johannesburg - 28 July 2011 16. Various of exterior of a non-working shaft rig at the Kloof gold mine STORYLINE: More than 250,000 South African gold miners went on strike on Thursday seeking higher wages and a cut of profits from soaring gold prices, a union representative said. The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) said they expect the industrial action to halt operations at four companies including Anglogold Ashanti, Harmony Gold and Goldfields. The miners want a 14 percent raise, Union General Secretary Frans Baleni said, because they want to see their share of the profits from high gold prices. The union said the striking gold miners would join more than 150-thousand other miners from the coal and diamond sectors, who began striking within the last week. Miner, Thandisizwe Jiya, told AP Television News he earns less than 600 US dollars (4,000 rand) a month. "The salary I''ve got, it''s little money. You can''t survive with that wage," he said. Baleni described miners'' work as "arduous" and said the fact that miners, who risked their health going underground, were paid less than manual labourers in the retail industry was "unfair". South Africa still remains one of the world''s top gold producers.

Memories still raw on eve of first anniversary of killing of 34 miners
 
03:32
It's been one year since 34 striking miners were gunned down by police in South Africa's northwestern platinum belt, but still the area bears the scars of a massacre that deeply affected the South African conscience and made international headlines. At the top of a small hill - known locally by it's Afrikaans name "koppie" - a small white cross marks the spot. On this hill on August 16, 2012, several days of peaceful protests by miners at the Lonmin platinum mine came to a head as 34 miners, trying to run from police aggression, were mown down by a barrage of live ammunition. Police claimed that the miners were armed with guns and that they had been acting in self defence. Pictures later revealed that the miners had only been carrying sticks and homemade spears. The death of the 34 miners tore through the small, impoverished community of Marikana, in South Africa's mineral-rich north west. The miners had been demanding a wage increase of up to 22 percent, which in some cases amounted to a monthly salary of 12,500 rand (1,250 US dollars): Small change compared to the millions of rand that their employers at Lonmin Platinum were making. One year on and little has changed in Marikana. The miners still work deep underground in difficult and dangerous conditions. John Manqinda, 57, has been working at the Lonmin mine as a loader for 14 years. Since the fateful day, Manqinda has only seen 7,000 rand of the promised 12,500 rand. He wonders whether the bloodshed was worth it. "The way my colleagues died, some were young men and others were the same age as me. It hurts me to think of what happened to them, because lawfully we were fighting for money as we were protesting for money. I see no reason why people had to be killed because they were only fighting for money," says Manqinda. The August 2012 shootings cast a light on Lonmin, owners of the Marikana mine. Lengthy negotiations were conducted with a new union body in an attempt to appease the angry workforce. A deal was recently struck, but still the collective memory haunts the newly-appointed CEO of Lonmin, Ben Magara. At a media briefing in the polished headquarters of Lonmin in Johannesburg, Magara called on the media to observe a moment of silence in memory of the dead miners. "So I would love to invite you to all join me in observing a moment of silence which is befitting this week as we commemorate the week that changed our lives in the mining industry industry. So if I may ask all of us to stand, and hopefully freeze some of the noisy cameras and observe a moment of silence. Thank you," said Magara. The gesture is seemingly sincere, but back on the ground in Marikana it does little to soothe the memories of fallen colleagues, nor does it ease the hardship of daily life. Anderson Ka-Nduku is 51 years old and has been working at Lonmin for seven years. He has five children and earns a monthly salary of 4,000 rands (400 US dollars). It's a far cry from the 12,500 rands he was promised. "Life is still hard. We are still living the same way as before, nothing changed after my colleagues were killed in on the koppie (Afrikaans word for "small hill"). Nothing has changed, not even salaries that we were expecting, They still have not paid us," says Ka-Nduku. Friday's anniversary commemorations will provide those miners willing forgo a day's pay to attend the planned ceremonies, the chance to remember their dead colleagues. But as long as promised salaries are not paid, the situation for the miners of Marikana will remain the same: impoverished and angry.

Wide of street outside township, with protesters and police STORYLINE: Striking farm workers continued violent protests Thursday in South Africa's Western Cape on Thursday, as demonstrators and police clashed with rocks and rubber bullets. The protesters - who came from the town of De Doorns - also tried to set up burning barricades on the main highway. De Doorns is one of many poor towns in South African's Western Cape province whose vineyards are vital to the wine industry. Riot police closed the main highway and retaliated by firing rubber bullets. Labour unrest has been reported in several areas of Western Cape province, where similar protests last year also turned violent, resulting in at least two deaths. The protesters had sought to block roads in a campaign for higher wages and to prevent other farmhands from going to work. They want their daily wages to be more than doubled to 150 South African rand (17.5 US dollars). According to Nosey Pieterse, general secretary of the Building and Allied Workers Union of South Africa, the strikers also "want better housing conditions on the farms and they want better working conditions." Earlier in the day, a local politician was reportedly shot at by private security guards that had been hired to protect the farms. Blood could be seen splattered on one of the farm walls. Protesters fear the police will not be able to protect them from the private security guards should they open fire. One local politician was arguing with police officers, telling them that "they shot our leader, they shot one of our senior leaders". "This is the plan of the farmers and me and Pat are on a hit list," he added. South Africa is a major wine producer. In addition to grape-harvesting, workers involved in the protests work on apple and other fruit farms. The country's mining industry was also shaken by labour unrest last year. Some of those protests turned violent, culminating in the shooting deaths of several dozen miners by police at a platinum mine.

SOUNDBITE (English) Bramage Sekete, striking mine worker at AngloGold Ashanti mine: "We are saying today, as the workers, not only the mine workers, but as the workers, we are saying, we need, or we demand, a living wage - sixteen thousand upwards." 5. Miners marching towards offices holding placards and singing 6. Close protester holding a placard calling on workers to reject a deal offering them 12,500 rand (1,483 US dollars) per month 7. SOUNDBITE (South Sotho) Pie Msebenzi, striking mine worker at AngloGold Ashanti mine: "This poster shows that they (management) did not want to listen to the miners of Marikana, where a lot of miners died, regarding the truth that was exposed by the miners of Marikana, about the money that we are paid by these companies." 8. Wide of poster reading (English) "Don't let the police get away with murder" 9. SOUNDBITE (English) Ntseki Mqabe, striking mine worker at AngloGold Ashanti mine: "I can't afford to pay for university right now or technical (college), because I am earning a little money - four thousand (rand) per month. It's a joke. It's peanuts." 10. Wide shot protesting mine worker symbolically digging tarmac on road with his shovel close to AngloGold Ashanti offices STORYLINE Gold miners in Orkney, in the North West province of South Africa, staged a large rally on Wednesday over poor wages and living conditions, union officials said. Thousands of singing, placard-waving workers marched to the headquarters in Orkney of the AngloGold Ashanti mining company, where production has been at a standstill since 26 September when all its miners joined a strike which began on September 20 at its Kopanang mine. The miners, many carrying signs recalling the recent Marikana mine strike, listened to rousing speeches by union officials who asked them not to give up on their demand for a monthly wage of 16-thousand rand (1,898 US dollars). "We demand a living wage - sixteen thousand upwards," said miner Bramage Sekete. Ntseki Mqabe, who also works in the mine, said their salary of four thousand rand (474 US dollars) per month was "a joke. It's peanuts." The strike at AngloGold Ashanti is one of a wave of mining strikes across the country, which began in August at Lonmin's Marikana mines. There police shot dead 34 striking workers on August 16, a level of state violence not seen since the end of apartheid in 1994. A retired judge is currently leading an official inquest into the Marikana incident and related violence that killed at least 44 people. The commission of inquiry will determine the roles played by the police, Lonmin and two mining unions, and whether any of those under investigation could have done something to prevent the violence. In September the Marikana strikers returned to work after accepting a pay increase of up to 22 percent through negotiations that also involved church leaders as mediators. But two of South Africa's most powerful unions said in a joint statement on Tuesday that the Marikana settlement set a bad precedent for labour relations in South Africa. Even as South Africa grapples with the Marikana incident, there appears to be no end in sight to the ongoing labour unrest. Workers have also been on strike for weeks at Anglo American Platinum, the world's largest platinum producer. Similar strikes are ongoing at Gold Fields and Samancor Chrome Western Mine.

Young South Africans vent frustration over poverty and joblessness

(28 Oct 2011) 1. Wide of young South Africans marching into the Union Buildings (the official seat of the South African government) 2. Wide of ANC (African National Congress) youth leader Julius Malema singing black liberation chant (Zulu) "Shoot the Boer!" in front of the Union Buildings 3. Zoom out of ANC youths marching and singing with riot police protecting the area 4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Julius Malema ANC Youth League Leader: "This government cannot be compared with the government of Egypt or Tunisia. This one has been elected by yourselves and you will always come here if you have issues to raise with your own government." 5. Riot police and ANC Youth League supporters 6. Zoom into Malema signing a memorandum with South African Minister of Public Works Thulas Nxesi 7. Various of police guarding the Union Building STORYLINE: Young South Africans brought their frustration over poverty and joblessness to the seat of the South African government in the capital Pretoria on Friday, responding to a call by the tough-talking youth leader of the governing African National Congress (ANC) who has clashed with older party leaders over economic policy. "Shoot the Boer!" sang Juliua Malema in Zulu (one of eleven official languages in South Africa), leading a crowd of thousands who sang after him. This is a black liberation war-era chant that South Africa's highest court has ruled is racist and that the ANC have ordered youth leader Malema and his followers to stop singing. "Boer," which means farmer in the language of Dutch-descended South Africans, is sometimes used for all whites. Malema said the protest was to demand that both the government and businesses do more to create jobs, build houses for the poor and provide free schools for their children. He has also called for mines to be nationalised, land to be taken from whites who benefited from apartheid and given to poor blacks and signed a memorandum to that effect which was received by Public Works minister Thulas Nxesi. The protesters' statement said they targeted the mines because of the industry's role in South Africa's history of racist economic development and said failure to concede "to these demands will lead to social instability due to continued economic exclusion of the black majority." Police and ANC Youth League marshals kept a close watch as the crowd of about 5,000 marched in 80 degrees Fahrenheit (27 degrees Celsius) heat as dance music blared from speakers. A quarter of the South African work force was unemployed even before the worldwide slowdown led to hundreds of thousands of lost jobs here. Unemployment among young people is even higher than the national average.

Pan from mine shaft lift to workers, rescuers 9. Mine workers by shaft, pan to assembly point 10. Mine workers 11. Close up of man in pink hat 12. Mine workers seated STORYLINE More than 2-thousand scared, exhausted and hungry workers have been rescued after spending hours deep in a crippled gold mine as efforts gathered speed on Thursday to bring hundreds more to the surface. There were no casualties on Wednesday when a pressurised air pipe snapped at the mine near Johannesburg and tumbled down a shaft, causing extensive damage to an elevator and trapping more than 3-thousand miners more than a mile underground. The accident prompted allegations that one of South Africa's most important industries was cutting safety corners in the name of profit and complaints from the government that mine owner Harmony Gold Mining Company did not bother to inform it of the potential crisis. Minerals and Energy Minister Buyelwa Sonjica said she and President Thabo Mbeki learned of the accident on the late evening news. Mining officials had discovered the elevator was inoperable just after 0600 local time (0500 GMT) on Wednesday and news was first made public by the miners union at 2100 local time. Sonjica said during a visit to the Elandsrand mine at Carletonville - a town in South Africa's mining heartland near Johannesburg - that health and safety legislation would be "tightened up." The mine's general manager Stan Bierschenk said that while morale was low underground, miners perked up as soon as they were rescued. He said most had complained of heat exhaustion and fatigue. The hundreds of workers who remained underground were all near a ventilation shaft and had been given water, but no food for fear of provoking a scramble among miners who had been underground for nearly two days, according to Peter Bailey, health and safety chairman for the National Mineworkers Union. Bierschenk said the company hoped to complete the rescue by lunchtime, although Bailey said late afternoon was more realistic. Last year, 199 mineworkers died in accidents, mostly rock falls, the government Mine Health and Safety Council reported in September. One worker was killed last week in a mine adjacent to Elandsrand.
