Iron Crows: Spare a Thought

Titled ”Iron Crows”, this 90 minute documentary examines the harsh conditions that workers in the Chittagong ship breaking yard in Bangladesh are subjected to. The average pay is US$2 a day and on average 20 workers die in the Chittagong yards every year while dismantling ships from all over the world.

The trailer is high-quality thus view the astounding scenes in full screen mode………………and spare a thought for the poor souls working there dismantling vessels that once serviced our requirements.

The YouTube link to the trailer is: http://youtu.be/n31OKLSO69k
