Waiting to Exhale – the Historic Silicosis Settlement
25 September 2019
Since July news of the largest ever class-action settlement in the history of the gold-mining industry has begun permeating the furthest corners of South Africa, where thousands of former mine workers have waited for decades to hear how much their suffering is worth. Around 500,000 breadwinners and their families, hard-hit by silicosis and tuberculosis from working on the mines, were awarded R5 billion collectively in a lawsuit against six of the gold mining giants who operated around 35 of the largest mines. Meeting some of the families who have been waiting, Carte Blanche asks whether the victory can change lives.
