Justice for Southern African Gold Miners
Over two decades into democracy, thousands of ex-gold miners are suffering from silicosis without the compensation, testing and care they need. We are calling on Anglo American and all the companies that made their fortunes from apartheid gold to pay up now.

Under apartheid, mining was South Africa's biggest industry. Hundreds of thousands of miners worked underground in appalling conditions, digging for gold. Production levels were high, and profits were prioritised over the safety of its workers. Black miners undertook the dustiest jobs, and protective measures were often not provided.
Take Action 

Please support our work and those suffering with silicosis by taking to Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms with a  link to one of our our campaign videos  

By watching these videos and sharing them with your friends and followers we can raise awareness of silicosis and the responsibility that companies like Anglo American have in ensuring that miners past and present receive justice.

Thank you
Thanks to all of you who wrote to their MP asking them to sign Early Day Motion 1260 South African Gold Miners and Respiratory Disease, in support of decent compensation, testing and healthcare for ex gold miners with silicosis. Ultimately, 43 MPs signed the motion.
