Police Open Fire On Striking Miners, Several Dead

An extremely graphic clip shows how a modern-day workers revolt is being handled with police opening fire on striking miners with several dead in the aftermath.

In a stunning and shocking turn of events at Lonmin’s Marikana platinum mine in South Africa, Reuters shows this extremely graphic clip of police opening fire on striking miners. A Reuters cameraman says he saw at least seven bodies after the shooting, which occurred when police laying out barricades of barbed wire were outflanked by some of an estimated 3,000 miners massed on a rocky outcrop near the mine, northwest of Johannesburg. Marx is not dead. In fact, far from it.
