In March 2016, 4,365 former gold miners suffering from silicosis were finally victorious in their long running battle for compensation from two of the biggest mining companies in South Africa. This is positive news, but it is not enough. This is only a partial victory and we must keep fighting for decent compensation and healthcare for ALL miners suffering from silicosis.

We still need to keep up the pressure on the mining companies. Justice delayed will certainly be justice denied. They should receive decent compensation now.

The recent settlement shows that the big mining companies do listen to campaigns like ours, however, without faster action, more miners will die without the compensation they and their families desperately need. 

Please dig deep for all miners across Southern Africa with silicosis. Together we can help them achieve justice.
