Former asbestos mine workers on hunger strike in Rajasthan-India

A message from ABAN:

The former Asbestos workers in Udaipur are at Strike infront of the Sub Divisional Magistrat (SDM) office of Jhadol since yesterday. 23 workers examined by the NIOH were the strike yesterday and several more joined today.
They are demanding the names of 93 asbestosis victims diagnosed by NIOH.
164 asbestos workers were examined and 93 were suspected asbestosis, NIOH did not disclose the list of 93 workers. In the past few years since the examine was done 19 have died and few more are in very serious condition. I have doubts that NIOH does not have the list of 93 as we did not get any response after the first appeal under RTI and have filed the case with CIC. The people on strike have local support from voluntary organisations and politacal parties(opposition).
