Some of the 12,000 miners sacked by Anglo American Platinum (Amplats) protest their dismissal and mourn a colleague killed in clashes with police at Bleskop Stadium on October 6, 2012 in Rustenburg.  Around 28,000 Anglo American Platinum (Amplats) workers have been on a wildcat strike for three weeks at the firm's sprawling facilities in Rustenburg, which account for around a quarter of world platinum production. With around 100,000 workers currently on strike across the country, President Jacob Zuma -- who has publicly kept his distance from the crisis -- has called for the work stoppages to end.
