JOHANNESBURG, Feb 20 (Reuters) - South Africa's Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) vowed on Thursday to continue a strike against the world's top three platinum producers, with its president describing it as a struggle for survival.

"We are prepared to see it through," AMCU president Joseph Mathunjwa told a news briefing. AMCU members downed tools four weeks ago in a wage dispute at Anglo American Platinum, Impala Platinum and Lonmin.
