Hundreds of workers blockade S. African platinum mines


Hundreds of people barricaded roads leading to a mine of the world’s top platinum producer Anglo American as labour unrest spread in South Africa’s key industry, police said.

“There is a strike, mine workers are gathering,” police spokesman Thulani Ngubane told AFP.

“They are rioting, barricading the roads with tyres, trees trunks and rocks.”

He said four shafts were affected by the unrest, adding “the situation is under control.”

the South African government, Amplats, and police had better handle this very, very carefully; otherwise, they may well have a revolution on their hands.

Well, the platinum dealers seem to be all over it too. Price is up 41 dollars today, that's quite the pop.
All things being equal, the simplest answer is quite often the correct answer - Occam
