In Bangladesh, men desperate for work perform one of the world's most dangerous jobs. They demolish huge ships in grueling conditions, braving disease, pollution, and the threat of being crushed or stabbed by steel sliced from the hulls. ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe About National Geographic: National Geographic is the world's premium destination for science, exploration, and adventure.

Ship breaking is one of the most hazardous jobs in the world because most ships are used to carry radioactive materials, toxic wastes, extremely poisonous chemicals and oil. Not only does it directly affect the health of the workers, it is an environmental time bomb - as workers strip the ships marooned on the sea shore, there is severe contamination of the sea bed, eventually seeping into the marine food chain. We visit the world's biggest ship breaking yard, Alang.
Eto na Lang....lol
Now any hope is lost...the scrapping process has already started..the sun shines into the cardeck... R.I.P. unique G.T.S. FINNJET!!! That's a really sad end for such a wonderful ferry! In june 2008 the famous GTS Finnjet reached the Alang srapyard for demolition. start of scrapping was announced for the 4th. of july. there is still little hope to save her! she is still untouched! on 21th august a inspection team left finland for visit in alang to get knowlegde about finnjet's condition and refloating possibilities. you see, something's going on! FINNJET is still the fastest ferry worldwide (33,5 knots) and the only one powered by gas turbines. Don't let this unique ship die! ********************************************

A baía de Alang, na Índia, é o maior cemitério de navios do mundo. É para lá que a Europa envia os seus barcos, muitas vezes com peças e material tóxico, prontos para serem desmantelados. Tudo o que provém dos navios é cortado e revendido à peça: aço, amianto, bóias, objectos decorativos... Desmanchar um navio na Ásia custa 100 vezes menos do que na Europa. O Toda a Verdade teve acesso ao local e falou com os trabalhadores que separaram os despojos dos barcos.

Safety is our motto. This is the sign towering over the entrance to the port of Alang. With its 127 shipyards, Alang in Gujarat is the world's largest shipbreaking port. Here, every day, around 80,000 workers strip down the metal carcasses of massive vessels. Often using their bare hands or rudimentary tools. Always without the support of medical services. Asbestos, dioxins, exhausted oils: many of the ships arriving here contain toxic or radioactive substances. Accidents are a daily occurrence, with about 300 deaths a year. Our journey among Indian workers begins here and continues in the cotton and sugarcane fields of Gujarat, among the peasants of Bengal forced by violence and murder to sell their lands to Western multinationals. The workers voices are intertwined with the ones of trade...
