Wives and mothers of missing miners have been protesting at the scene of Thursday’s police shooting in South Africa – many of them not knowing if their loved ones are alive or dead.

At least 34 miners were killed and dozens more injured in the clashes. Police say over 250 others were arrested, hence confusion about the fate of some of those who had been striking for higher pay.

President Jacob Zuma cut short a trip to Mozambique because of the violence and travelled to Marikana where the killings happened, 100 kilometres northwest of Johannesburg.

He ordered an official inquiry into what he called the “shocking” events and insisted on his commitment to peace, stability and a better quality of life for all, especially the poor and working class.

“It is against this background that we have to uncover the truth about what happened here,” he said.

Police maintain they acted in self-defence by firing on 3,000 striking miners armed with machetes and sticks near the mine, owned by major platinum producer Lonmin.

Prior to Thursday, 10 people, two of them policemen, had been killed in several days of conflict between rival unions at the site.

About ottwf

The capitalistic and imperialistic system and its systematic aims: profit and power over others, still dominates our world and not the aims of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as 1948 agreed! After the world-economic-crisis after 1929 and the following World-War the world hat decided with agreeing the Universal Declaration of Human rights, to create a new world order; conflicts should be solved with peaceful means, not nations and their power, but the dignity of human beings around the world should be the aim of the policies and the economy, of every state and the community of states. But soon after the end of the war, when the victims and destruction were forgotten, all continued as before, with all risks, we had seen before. The split in rich an poor is getting bigger and bigger. We also overuse our global environment already, even if the big majority of mankind still lives in poverty! We are not victims, this world is men-made and be changed from men and women! It will be possible, if those, who do not want or serve (because of system-pressure) profits first, but want for themselves and everybody a life in human dignity unite and develop in a global base-democratic movement a common vision for our world, and learn, how to make this vision real. We need for it a big empowerment of many, many common men and women and their activities. Our chances are because of new communication technologies, of common languages, of the level of education and the mixture of people from different backgrounds better then ever. The occupy-movement is a good start for such a global movement. We support it and try to contribute to its success! We choose news and make comments and so try to unite people for an Occupy-Think-Tank: Its tasks: creating a news-network, self-education, working on global-reform programs and learning to organize projects for those, who are suffering. Join us, so that we can build teams for these aims for all subjects and countries as a base for the unification. We have Wan(n)Fried(en) in our name, because it means When peace and it is a modification of the name of the town our base is, in Wanfried, a small town in the middle of Germany, where we can use a former factory for our activities.
