Global Day of Action

Uproot TheDMRE

On 22 September 2021 mining affected communities from different areas in Limpopo gathered at DMRE in Polokwane to hand over memorandum. Communities are undermined and there are not taken seriously, communities suffer the consequences of the mining operations in the province, there’s high unemployment in mining areas, sickness and disputes amongst villagers. The community is divided while on the other hand mines continue to care about profit not people ,their health and the environment.

The memorandum was given and we were promised to get responses within 7 days. We are sick and tired of empty promises.
