South africa marikana strike over 20120918

Demonstrators hold a placard during march by protesting miners in Rustenburg on September 16, 2012 after a security crackdown in the restive platinum belt where officers shot dead 34 strikers exactly a month ago. Workers dispersed calmly after armoured trucks and armed police in riot gear stopped them from marching on a police station in northwestern Rustenburg, a day after officers fired rubber bullets on in nearby strike-hit Marikana.
