Al Jazeera, recently published a documentary about the court battle of cancer-stricken workers versus their ex-employer RCA. (More background on this lawsuit, here)
“More than 1,500 former workers at a television factory in Taiwan have been diagnosed with cancer. The company admits that it dumped hazardous waste, polluting the land and poisoning groundwater. But did Radio Corporation of America recklessly expose its employees to cancer-causing chemicals? For nearly two decades, sick workers have been waging a David and Goliath battle as they seek justice in the courts for their suffering.”
Earlier this year, the workers won the lawsuit, but from what I gather, both sides are appealing, RCA to maintain their innocence in the ill-health of their former workers, and the workers to get compensation for all former employees, so the story is to be continued…
Behind the scenes pictures are available on the fb of Al Jazeera 101 East.
