Gold miners are dying of silicosis and TB while waiting for compensation, demand action

Reason for signing

  • As a former mine worker, I have first-hand experience of the harsh conditions and the unfair treatment experienced by mine-workers. I have seen how these brave men face danger in the face and yet today remain ill, destitute and subjected to abject poverty. I am currently working as a researcher focusing on finding means for poverty alleviation for the impoverished former mine employees and bring justice to the hundreds of thousands that have lost their lives.
