Please watch this footage clearly. None of the workers have weapons. This is cold blooded murder.
This is the story of our age. These black worthless mine-workers were killed in cold blood. Their lives meant absolutely nothing except, maybe something to their immediate impoverished family members and friends. A miner is born into mining down in South Africa, virtually enslaved into a pitiful life of hard labour. These men risk their health and their lives for resources traded on the world commodity markets. Their efforts ensure that we in the West, live as we do. As a civilised world it is our duty to ensure the health and safety of these peasants. It is our duty to house them effectively, with good sanitation, a proper roof over their heads and beds with decent mattresses. Clean kitchens to cook and wash in and comfortable living spaces, in which to lounge in. A table and chairs in order to eat from and maybe some clean water to drink and a lightbulb in order to see. Free education for their children to ensure their lives have possibilities further than just going down a mine-hole. They need free healthcare and transport. They need a decent wage rather than a pitiful existence. Until these demands have been met, the minerals on earth with cease to be of any value to anybody. I advise anybody interested in investing in precious metals to think very seriously about whether or not you want to invest in human life; in the Slavery of others.. Hold back your pounds, shillings and pence until these vital human conditions have been met and effectively put into place by the greedy, vicious and hateful mine owners.
I believe the London Exchange should pay tribute to these seemingly pointless families down in South Africa. As a civilised nation we must maintain the upmost respect for these underclass individuals. May I suggest a 2 minute silence at 11am on Monday morning and a small prayer for the markets not to fall too low in the precious metals sectors and a short prayer for all those that have invested.
Let us pray:
Our Money, which 'art in Jo'burg,
Hollow by thy name.
Thy Kingdom come, the killing done,
on earth as they were just poor Africans.
Give us our pay and their daily bread.
Forgive them their weapons
as they never had none,
as we have forgotten their lives already.
And lend them not, for they are corruption,
but deliver them just a little more evil.
For Mines are the kingdom, the power,
and the glory, for ever and ever.
