According to Erdogan these accidents happen all the time. Especially in 19th Century England!!

This is what happens in coalmining. There is no such thing as accident-free work. Let me go back to the past in England," he said. "In a slide in 1862, 204 people died, in 1866, 361 people died, and in an explosion in England in 1894, 290 died. So let's please not say that these things never happen elsewhere in coalmines. These things happen. We do have something called an accident at work."

Do not let the settlers and carpetbaggers infiltrate the Cypriot government or become Cypriot citizens.

This is what is in store for the Greek Cypriots or anyone else if they protest against these uncivilized pea brains.

This is appalling behavior.

According to Cumhuriyet newspaper, average salaries for miners in Turkey are in the range of 1,000-1,500 Turkish lira per month (about 350-525 euro), and in some exceptional cases there are miners earning up to 4,000 Turkish lira per month.

VIDEO: Did Turkish PM Erdoğan slap a protester in Soma?

New footage emerged May 15 apparently showing Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan engaging in a scuffle in a crowd in the mining disaster-struck town of Soma.

The crowd surrounding Erdoğan in the footage, which has been widely circulated on the Internet, makes it difficult to discern the exact circumstances. However, at the beginning of the video several people are heard booing and whistling at Erdoğan, who then appears to single out one protester, telling him to “Come and boo me here by my side.”

After the unidentified person enters a nearby supermarket, Erdoğan is seen following him with his aides and bodyguards. The prime minister’s arm then appears to swing in the entrance of the supermarket amid the scuffle, before Erdoğan walks from the area along with his security team.

Many social media users have suggested that the video shows Erdoğan “slapping” the protester, though it is not clear from the footage whether his fist is actually aimed at someone or whether it was just swung in protest.

Yep,

He followed the protestor into the supermarket and slapped him. Then walked out.

Some official was waving at the camera man, what appears to be a gesture to cut it, at the entrance as Erdogan was going in. Then Erdogan and his bodyguards administered a few ottoman slaps and walked out afterwards.

The mining disaster as a result of Turkish and AKP corruption:

All mining contracts and licenses are checked, negotiated and approved by him (Erdogan), bypassing all bureaucratic investigations and measures. Some mine owners also own media outlets, and their media outlets have been taken hostage by Erdoğan through their mines...

Miners have said if you were not a member of the Justice and Development Party (AKP), you were not given a job at the mine. Some 3,000 of them were taken to Erdoğan's election rallies by force since their lunch tickets had been collected to be given to them after the rallies. Inspectors have tried to close down the mine several times due to the lack of safety measures, but politicians have come to the owner's rescue. Now, no-one of sound mind believes that there will be a just and proper investigation into the accident that has cost hundreds of lives.

Such terrible things do not happen in a democracy.
