Russian asbestos endangering lives of people in Mexico

Tue, Jul 16, 2013


Kathleen Ruff,

Over 800 tons of asbestos, shipped by Russia to Mexico, have been left abandoned for the past eight months at the port of Veracruz, Mexico. Some sacks have broken, spilling the chrysotile asbestos out into the open. Asbestos fibres are blowing in the air and being breathed in by workers  and anyone living in the nearby area or passing through it. See photos and article below.
