Thai Workers in Israel – Who cares about them?

Thailändische Arbeiter in Israel.

The BBC aired a documentary about Thai workers in Israel. A Thai journalist did this excellent piece. Her findings are just shocking.  The working and living conditions are repelling and scandalous. The workers are living in poverty and squalor just a little bit better than rats. 25 000 workers live in pre-capitalist conditions, and they can stay only for five years. Their existence is precarious, to put it mildly.

Israel imported foreign workers from Thailand and other parts of the Third World to take over the jobs after the Zionist regime banned Palestinian workers from entering Israel.

The Thai workers have to spray pesticides en mass, which causes not only massive health problems for the workers but also major health problems for consumers of Israeli agricultural products. Consumers around the world should decide, after having watched this documentary, whether they still should buy Israeli products. Where they appear in supermarkets, you should protest.

The following documentary may be available only for 29 days.

In German.
