South Africa update

23rd June 2007

The South African government says it will address the appalling attrition - against both communities and workers - caused by current mining operations.

Citing, strident resistance to Angloplat/Anglo American's plans to forcibly relocate up to 10,000 people in Limpopo, and the death of twelve mineworkers at the company's biggest platinum mine since the beginning of the year (five in the past fortnight alone), the current plan is to grant mineshare ownership to both communities and trade unionists.
