“At the first blow of His thundering sword, the mountains and all Nature will tremble in terror, for the disorders and crimes of men have pierced the vault of the heavens. Paris will burn and Marseilles will be engulfed. Several cities will be shaken down and swallowed up by earthquakes. People will believe that all is lost. Nothing will be seen but murder, nothing will be heard but the clash of arms and blasphemy. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
Conakry (AFP) - Five women and two girls have been killed in a landslide at a goldmine in northeastern Guinea, police said on Wednesday. The collapse happened on Tuesday in Kintinian, a settlement by Siguiri, a city on the Niger river near the border with Mali. "The collapse of the mine, which also wounded at least eight people, including two seriously, occurred... at dawn in a goldmine frequented by illegal miners who don't think twice about going into deep shafts that only they know and which can be up to 100 metres (330 feet) long," a policeman said on condition of anonymity. He said authorities had shut the mine several times after discovering non-licensed miners working in its shafts. Guinea sits atop huge deposits of gold, bauxite and diamond but the majority of its people live in poverty and unregulated and dangerous artisanal mining by individuals is commonplace. Around 20 miners were killed in a landslide at a goldmine in Siguiri in November last year, and another eight were killed in the eastern town of Mandiana in March. "Over the past five years there have been at least seven accidents like this which have left at least 46 people dead," said Siguiri resident Mamadou Diawara, who saw the collapse. Police said artisanal mining had been banned in the area since 2012 and they were investigating a Guinean mining company over the incident.

I protest once more against the very false statements of all those who dare say and write First that I embroidered the Secret; second, against those who state that the Queen Mother did not say to transmit the Secret to all her people."
