Miners don't give up strike in South Africa

On the eve of the legislative Wednesday, the South African President called for the end of the standoff that has lasted nearly four months. Jacob Zuma said that "both employers and workers must know that there is a limit to the strike, a limit for a conflict, that can't last forever," adding have told them to "be responsible".

Zuma warned trade unionists to the risk of losing many jobs, at a time when the unemployment rate reached 25 percent.

About 80 thousand strikers and the stoppage has cost more than EUR 1 billion to businesses and 500 million employees. Not to mention several incidents, such as houses and cars set on fire and looted a shopping centre.
