Dangerous clay mining

A labourer balances precariously to loosen clay in a mining pit, where earth slips can occur but there’s no compensation for the injured or lives lost. The indigenous Hajong and Garo people who work in these mines have lost their land and homes to leaseholder companies at less than the market price. Bijoypur, Durgapur. May 20, 2010.
