The Wider Image: Georgian mining town offers little alternative to deadly job
Retired miner Guram Gamezardashvili, 54, attends a funeral of his cousin Mikheil Gamezardashvili, a 55, a miner who died during an accident at the Mindeli mine of Saknakhshiri coal mining company in Tkibuli, Georgia, July 20, 2018. Guram got injured in the mine in 2010 and retired. His son Pavle died in the mine earlier this year. "There isn't any other job in the town that's why we all work at the mine. We need more attention from the government, the safety rules must be tightened. The closing of the mine is not a solution, so many people will starve in that case," he said.
