Protests outside De Beers’ Venetia mine block roads

Residents of Blouberg and former employees of Venetia Mine, owned by De Beers, on Monday protested outside the open pit mine demanding that workers be given shares in the company. The protesters, who said they want to discuss with mine management issues relating to “Ponagalo shares and trust funds”, blocked roads in Alldays, Limpopo, that lead to the mine.
