South Africa: several injured in miners' strike

The all out miners' strike in South Africa is getting more and more complicated. At least four workers were injured by police at a gold mine near Johannesburg partly owned by relatives of President Zuma, whose political continuity is less and less clear. 

While some of the previously arrested miners were released yesterday, many others remain in prison, accused under fascist laws issued by the Apartheid regime. 

The real issue is that the immense wealth of South Africa has not been nationalized as it should and remains in the hands of a few greedy capitalists, mostly foreigners. There cannot be democracy while the wealth remains in the hands of a few: that's mere oligarchy.
