At least 30 Afghans lost their lives and 7 get injured due to the collapse of a tunnel of a gold mine in northern Afghanistan. During the collapse, 50 people were in the mine.

Poverty, hunger, and impoverishment force the people to recourse to dangerous, for their lives, works in order to survive. The 30 Afghans added to the endless list of the people who died trying to create a better future for them and their families.

Either a worker is drowned in the sea, trying to avoid the imperialist wars or is buried to a mine tunnel, trying to earn its livelihood, is one more victim of the capitalist barbarity which entails inhuman livening and working conditions for millions of people.

The World Federation of Trade Unions expresses its sincere condolences to the families of the killed people and calls the workers all the world to join the ranks of the class-oriented trade union movement intensifying our struggles for a world without exploitation.
