Tumi Moloi, a striking miner who works at an Amplats shaft close to Rustenburg spoke at the "Unite the Resistance 2012" conference in London (UK) on Saturday, 17 November. He is a strike committee member in Rustenburg, where 30,000 miners working for Amplats platinum - a subsidiary of global mining giant Anglo American - have been on strike for two months.

Moloi led his shaft's 4,500 workers out on strike in September.

Moloi is a member of the Rustenburg Strike Committee, which is now being reconstituted as the Rustenburg Workers' Committee. He has previously been active as a youth leader in his local civic township organisation, fighting for homes to have electricity supplies and sewerage systems.
