The following day, two other workers plunged to their death when the canle of the lift at the construction site snapped.

This 14 year- old girl was forced to drop out of school to look after her baby sister and to join her parents to work at the construction site when the family can not make ends meet. She joined the LABOR DAY rally on 1 May that brought workers’ petition to the National Assembly.
