CPA condemns shooting of South African miners

The Communist Party of Australia condemns the shooting of striking miners by police in South Africa. The CPA mourns the loss of life and expresses its sympathy to the families of the miners. The Party supports calls by progressive forces for a commission of inquiry to get to the bottom of the matter and bring those responsible for the deaths to justice. While the circumstances of the tragic incident are complex and unclear at the time of publication of this week’s Guardian, there can be no justification for the use of deadly force against workers. The Guardian will carry a full report in an upcoming issue.
