Deaths on Alang Beach till September 2011

So far this year on Alang beach, Bhavnagar, Gujarat, 27 workers have died due to the criminal callousness of ship owning countries, companies, ship breakers, Gujarat Maritime Board, Directorate General of Shipping, Ministry of Steel, Ministry of Environment & Forests, the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs, Basel Convention Secretariat and International Maritime Organisation (IMO).

When there are some many countries, companies and agencies to be blamed, how will these workers get justice?

What is the condition of one of world's most polluted place, Alang Beach?

ToxicsWatch Alliance holds hypocrisy of countries and companies from developed world like Japan and European Union and USA along with the collusion of Indian political class responsible for the death of these workers.

Deaths in Alang are caused by corporate terrorism of shipping companies which bigger and more powerful than Government of India, Parliament of India and UN agencies.
