Earlier this week it was reported that a delegation of 10 mineworkers from a remote area of Rajasthan travelled to the capital New Delhi to meet government health officials. The delegation was a part of the Mine Labour People’s Campaign, which is campaigning to get medical care and compensation for workers. In 2007, about 150 workers had been examined by the National Institute of Occupational Health (NIOH), but almost 100 were not notified that they had signs of asbestosis. In these five years, 22 of these workers have died. The campaign to ban asbestos in Asia, and in the rest of the world, continues.
