South Africa: To the miners of the Sibanye-Stillwater Group mines

you have full solidarity in the struggle for higher wages and better working conditions from us, the International Miners Coordination.

Our full solidarity belongs to your courageous and determined strike. We will announce your strike on our website
Our sympathy also goes to those who died in accidents at work and those responsible must be held accountable.

In our struggle program, which was adopted at the 2nd International Miners' Conference in 2017, it says: ... that we miners, together with our families, must cooperate internationally and coordinate our struggles if we are to become a superior force to the international mining monopolies and their governments. At this founding conference we decided: "Today it is less and less possible to assert oneself isolated from each other and locally restricted against the international mining monopolies. What we need is the unity of workers worldwide! 1

In this sense, we wish for close cooperation with your trade unions and miners' organisations. Please tell us more about your struggle and what solidarity you need.

Glück Auf (Miner's greeting in Germany)
Andreas Tadysiak
Chief Coordinator of the International Miners' Coordination
