"Many Will Die"

Fueled by both the killings and the fiery rhetoric of former ANC Youth Leader Julius Malema, workers vowed to fight to the death in defiance of mine officials and police who urged the miner's to end the protest.

"You must never retreat, even in the face of death," Malema told the miners. "Many people will die as we struggle for economic freedom."
