Asbestos: The Human Cost of Corporate Greed by Laure Kazan, director of the International Association to Ban Asbestos, was published in Brussels in 2206. This 40 page pamphlet, including many photographs, is dedicated to "all those throughout the world who have suffered and died from asbestos-related diseases." This is an important summary of the need to ban asbestos throughout the world and highlights attempts by the asbestos industry and the Canadian government to continue the asbestos nightmare. It begins with a quote from Remi Posse, former member of Parliament from the Netherlands, who says, "Aside from gunpowder, asbestos is the most scandalous substance people have had to work with. The dark forces which profit from asbestos think little of using blackmail, deceit and unscrupulous practices to protect the bottom line; they willingly sacrifice workers' health for corporate profits." Copies can be obtained from the WLA (POB 1483, Balt. MD. 21203) for $15.00. For further information contact Vivienne Gadeyne at vgadeyne@europarl.eu.int to request copies. -- NEW!
