Demonstrators protest against Russian asbestos mining

May 1, 2013

Protests about continuing asbestos mining in Russia – now the world’s biggest producer – took place on International Workers Memorial Day in April; demonstrators travelled from across the UK for an event outside the Russian embassy in London.  The JHMRF supports the call for a total ban on all asbestos mining and production.
