Chinese coal mines continue to kill scores of workers

December 1, 2014 · 








This week saw two major accidents at Chinese coal mines. The first one was at a State-owned coal mine of the Hengda Mining Company, in Liaoning province. Accumulated coal dust ignited a fire in which 24 miners were killed and more than 50 injured. A day later, an explosion at the Songlin coal mine in Guizhou Province, killed at least 11 workers. Coal mines in China are among the most dangerous in the world as poor health and safety conditions, lax regulations, and corruption create a murderous environment for workers. Only independent unions will be able to effectively fight for better conditions.
