Turkey mine disaster: Raw anger in Soma a year on - BBC News


"We get 1,000 lira (£230; $370) a month as our sons' pensions," says Ahmet. "But nobody from the government has visited us, nobody has come to see how we are. I feel betrayed. I used to vote for the [governing] AK Party but never again."

Remembering Soma a year on today.

Re: Turkish mining disaster 200 dead

You wouldn't believe it !! 2 weeks on from remembering the miners that died 1 year ago in the Soma Mining Disaster were 301 miners died .


While the trial of the company owners regarding the Soma mine disaster that claimed the lives of 301 workers in May, 2014 has dragged on,

the miners who survived the massacre have been charged with “deliberately damaging property” and for opposition to the law on organising marches and rallies.

The indictment of the prosecutor pointed to the march that the miners held for their colleagues who lost their lives in the disaster as the crime scene.

The indictment said the miners had held a march on 17 June 2014 alleging that they had not received the bodies of those who died in the mine disaster, and blockaded a road in the town and prevented the passage of a car and damaged it.

The miners in Soma held a march on 17 May 2014 in protest at not being allowed to have the bodies of their colleagues.

The indictment says the march was organised around one month later than the massacre, contradicting the facts.‏

Re: Turkish mining disaster 200 dead

It took a while but there has been some justice:-

A Turkish court has handed out hefty jail sentences over the death of 301 miners in Turkey’s deadliest ever mine disaster in the Soma district of the western province of Manisa on May 13, 2014.
