Canada: Stop Exporting Asbestos26 September 2011
The Canadian government is looking to reopen Jeffery Mine in Quebec. This will massively increase Canada's export of death - asbestos. Will you tell the Canadian High Commissioner what you think of their deadly trade?
Union Aid Abroad-APHEDA shares the union movement's concerns about asbestos use anywhere in the world. We all know we need a moratorium now.
Workers - particularly those in developing countries - continue to be affected. We are working with our trade union partners, especially in Vietnam, to protect workers and to build towards bans on asbestos.
Through the Vietnam-Australia Asbestos Disease Prevention Project we have set up a National Centre for Asbestos and Asbestos-Related Disease which is conducting research in factories, collecting information and educating workers and trade unions.
But protecting workers and banning asbestos country-by-country is just one half of the story, we need a global ban on the asbestos export industry.
That's why we are asking you today to email the Canadian High Commissioner to let them know it's not okay to export death.
