Shipbreaking Chittagong documentation (Bangladesh : 2004)
At the graveyard of ships workers break up scrap metal and ships lined up in distance await demolition, Chittagong, Bangladesh. Greenpeace opposes the practice of dumping obsolete toxic loaded ships for demolition in developing countries such as Bangladesh. Workers in the 'ship breaking' yards are exposed to hazardous substances and injuries and deaths occur frequently. Greenpeace demands that the vessels be made safe before they are scrapped.
