Police shoots miners in South Africa

What a shameful exploitation of poor people the mining business in South Africa seems to be. Last week south african police opened fire on striking miners and killed 34 of them. Some say some of the miners were armed with machetes, spears and guns. The mine in question is for Platinum and it must be worth a lot. Platinum or Pt is an important catalyst, i.e. it increases the likelihood and thus speed of many chemical reactions. So for us in the west to drive fuel efficient cars and alike, should we accept this kind of exploitation in the economical periphery? Here you can see if if lonmin has any vacancies now that they have killed some of their employees lonmin.com/careers.
