Yesterday, mine workers led a peaceful demonstration to protest low wages.  The security forces for the mine opened fire and killed 3 persons and injured 8.  Rioting broke out in the streets.  The police came in with tear gas.  The Vice-President came to Koidu to calm the situation.  Mine workers are paid very low wages while the owners are gaining great wealth

Proverbs 22:16  He that oppresseth the poor to increase his gain, and he that giveth to the rich, shall come only to want.

James 5:4 Behold, the hire of the laborers who mowed your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth out: and the cries of them that reaped have entered into the ears of the Lord of Saboath.
