Perils of Labour
Mr. Yi, a 33-year-old migrant worker from Hubei province, is a benzene poisoned victim of leukemia. In his struggle for compensation fraught with frustration, this victim-turn-activist fighter gives us a striking life example of how distorted is the labour-legal system in China and why he insisted to uphold the justice of his own and the working class people throughout the years.
Workers' deadly partner
Benzene is found in almost every industrial solvents. It is found in glue in shoes, in coating on toys, and in cleaning agent in for electronic parts.
Yet benzene is also a deadly carcinogen. It is generally considered that the only absolutely safe concentration for benzene is zero. At its current scale of use it is possible that up to a million Chinese workers will die from benzene.
Benzene is replaceable, human lives are not. Support and stop this massacre of workers!
