TALLMANSVILLE, W.Va. -- Rescue crews today stepped up the pace in trying to get to 13 miners trapped by an explosion in the Sago Mine, the president of the company that owns the mine said at a briefing this morning.

The ILO estimates over 5,000 workplace deaths a DAY under this system. That's only formal workplaces, that's only direct and relatively immediate deaths, and that's the ILO. Anyone who is worked up about 13 white, male, American, extraction-industry workers *possibly* going to die on the job obviously harbors a nostalgia and a chauvinism for a working class subject so narrow, so specific, and so historically remote that they are all but acknowledging their disdain for today's real global working class.

Did "the nation" mourn these fourteen migrant laborers who died on their unpaid, hazardous, multiple-hour commute to their picking job in Maine just three years ago? http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2002/09/12/national/main521859.shtml

Does "the nation" join together in praying for the 70 people who will die in the ornamental shrub and tree "services" industry this year, in hopes that they will instead survive?

No. And to add insult to injury, incidents like this are held up as class-struggle equivalents of the "abducted blonde teenager" stories. It's only on the occasion when a relative handful of workers similar in enough aspects to most of the world's rulers--white, Christian, male citizen settlers--are imperiled that the slow genocide of the working class momentarily breaches its head even in Left circles. We say: reject this logic! One owner for every worker dead no matter what their color, occupation, or citizenship status!
