Soma – no men’s underground
More then 300 workers are found dead until now, the youngest victim is 15 years old.
People in Turkey are mourning and protesting side by side. In one mural on a wall someone is asking. Is it worth it to have a watch costing the lifes of 700 workers? It’s a comment on the governments careless politics on poor men’s security. Primeminister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan caused riots in Soma with a speech reminding other death cases in mines worldwide and pointing out “such things happen”. A couple of weeks ago it was found out, that former economy minister Mehmet Çaglayan owns a watch, that costs 250000 Dollars. That are approxametly 700.000 TL. Probably all the men underground could have been saved, if the governmenmt would have spent money in the value of a watch for the security system.
