Early in the morning, the mine workers met at Wonderkop Stadium and started marching to Lonmin Platinum Division offices. Lonmin bosses called the police, asking for
the Public Order Policing Unit to deal with the march, and told the mine workers they would not speak
to a “faceless” crowd that had no union representation, and that they should go back to work. There were also reports that non-striking mine
workers were being intimidated.
