About 150 timbers workers calling themselves ‘Gangalleh’ in the West Coast Region of The Gambia, have begun “an indefinite protest” demanding an end to “exploitative working conditions”. They are particularly demanding their Chinese employers to pay better wages and compensate injured as well as relatives of workers who died on duty.
Some of the protesters had bandaged hands, missing fingers and at least one of them had a wrist missing.
They carried placards bearing messages such as Down With Exploitation, We Want Better Pay.
The protesting youths also said, they have no aim to disturb country’s peace, but want their voices to be heard about the unacceptable conditions under which they work.
