MOVEMENT TO BAN ASBESTOS INTERNATIONALLY
"To bring an end to one hundred years of disability and death caused by the use of asbestos, asbestos victims, public health campaigners, healthcare professionals, concerned citizens and NGOs are calling for a global ban on asbestos. Millions of lives have already been sacrificed to generate billions of dollars of profits for governments and companies with asbestos interests; the time has come to call a halt to this killer industry! On the occasion of International Workers' Memorial Day (April 28, 2006), we join together to support calls for a worldwide ban on asbestos being made by Parliamentarians, international trade unions, medical associations and international agencies."
