    30 people killed after police opened fire in Africa (WARNING: DISTURBING FOOTAGE)



    At least 30 people have been killed after police opened fire on striking platinum miners at the Marikana mine north west of Johannesburg, one of the bloodiest police operations since apartheid ended in South Africa.

    Police were sent to intervene after thousands of miners, seen here armed with clubs and machetes, gathered to protest outside the Lonmin-owned platinum mine.

    The reasons why police opened fire on the strikers remains unclear, but eyewitness reports suggest the shooting took place after a group of demonstrators rushed at a line of police officers.

    According to a journalist at the scene, officers had first used water cannons, tear gas and stun grenades in an attempt to disperse the crowd.

    The shootings are the climax to several days of violent protests. 10 people had already been killed in other clashes in the mining town.

    The Mine, owned by the world's third largest platinum producer Lonmin, has been at the centre of a violent pay dispute after workers demanded a pay increase to 12,500 rand, or ?976 a month.

    The London based company had earlier warned striking miners that they would lose their jobs if they did not return to work.

    The President of South Africa, Jacob Zuma, has said the was 'shocked and dismayed at this senseless violence'. Helen Zille, leader of opposition party the Democratic Alliance, has called for an independent investigation into the shootings.

    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    Man, if i saw 100 guys with big knifes running in my direction, i would shoot them down also. I'm not backing up all the situation that lead to this. But at this point would be kill or be killed. And no , they weren't running to the cops to give hugs and kisses...
    Lo, there do I see my Father..
    Lo, there do I see my Mother
    And my Sisters and my Brothers..
    Lo, there do I see the line
    Of my people back to the beginning..
    Thay do bid me to take my place among them..
    In the Halls of Valhalla,
    Where the Brave may live forever.
