Protest Lonmin's AGM: In solidarity with Marikana Miners

12 March 2018 - 11:15am
Event

The fatal police shooting of 34 striking workers at Lonmin’s Marikana platinum mine in August 2012 was the worst recorded instance of police violence in post-apartheid South Africa. Five years on, there have been no prosecutions and no real improvements – no compensation for the families living in grief and dire poverty. Since the massacre, Lonmin has been complicit in a process of intimidation and cover-ups, culminating in attempts to sell the company to avoid accountability altogether.

Protest Lonmin's AGM!

Lonmin's Annual General Meeting is in London on 15 March. Join us with the London Mining Network and frontline campaigners from South Africa at a protest to hold Lonmin to account for their complicity in this atrocity!

15 March at 9:30am–11:30am, Lincoln Centre, 18 Lincoln’s Inn Fields, London WC2A 3ED
