Injured Worker in DRC 受伤工人在刚果民主共和国

作者: 綠色和平

On August 20th 2016, Mbayokapoto injured his finger while loading Mukula hardwood logs. His foreman refused to pay for treatment and compensation. Workers here are held responsible for their own safety.
Pterocarpus tinctorius, or Mukula tree, is a rare and slow-growing hardwood unique to southern and central Africa. Mukula has been illegally logged and traded from Zambia and DRC to China for the last decade, feeding the increasing demand of "rosewood" in the Chinese market.
8月20日,MBAYOKAPOTO在搬运木头时压断了根手指,他说:“老板没有给钱治疗和赔偿,老板说:’是你自己不小心碰到的我们不管’。”当地人也都认为在工作中保护好自己是工人自己的事情。
