Comrades today we, from mining affected communities , are gathered because of poverty, loss of our identity, there’s hunger and we face many challenges. The Freedom Charter was establish in 1955 were its state that we the people have to govern. This has turned out to be lies.
We say today we as the mining communities gathered here affirm our support to the (People’s Mining Charter) and in doing this we affirm our right to participate and contribute, and to enjoy economic, social, cultural and political development in which all fundamental human freedom rights can be fully realized

Mr Mathunjwa said he was very much humbled to be with to us, the organisers and all people who gathered today.
