Thy sin’s not accidental

Dead Peruvian miners

In the period 2000 to 2010, Peru managed to kill 684 miners at its officially registered mines (these figures don’t include deaths at the informal or artisanal mineworkings so Lord only knows how many more there are to tack onto these numbers). 

We’re glad the 33 Chilean miners were saved last year, but on average nearly double that amount of souls were killed in Peru every year in the years in question (works out at 31.09 X 2). The chart data is from here and now for a cheesey 80’s video.
