Sadly another example of the ridiculous risks some men have to take to support their families.Another mining tragedy like the one in Chile as a result of poor safety procedures.

This would never happen in modern day Britain thanks to the Trade Unions and Arthur Scargill.

That is a fact like it or not !

Apparently the Mine owners did nothing to improve Safety in the Mine, employed 15 yr olds when it is illegal to employ anyone under the age of 18 should not be hired. Thousands gathering outside the Mine very angry at this disaster and the massive loss of life.

Make no mistake,most Mine Owners and Capitalists in general ( not all of them there are undoubtedly some that do care) but most would quite willingly send a working man to his death to earn an extra euro to pay for his mistress to have a new pair of red shoes.

Unions call for protest strike

As you can see from the photos the President was lucky to get away in his car, it now transpires that there is no record of the Miners and they don't carry ID cards , no one knows how many are still trapped in the mine.

The situation in Turkey has escalated into violence , not only near the Mine, but all over Turkey, the President being blamed for what happened. The death toll has risen to 282 with about 150 still missing, believed dead now.

Hi Badboy anger has spread all over Turkey and violence erupted at the lack of care by the President and Mine owner. Hopefully this tragedy will lead to better working conditions in Mines in Turkey .
