This is the greatest industrial killer of the XXth century. The story is not over yet. Around 300 new cases of «Absestos cancer» are reported each year in France. It would represent 100000 deaths until 2025. At the European scale this number grows up to 500000.
This is also one of the most efficient industrial lobbying case in France’s History.
This is an unthinkable manipulation led by financial interests. These ones led to the death of thousands of workers. Thousands of workers that no one has wanted or known how to protect.
