SOAS Korean Social and Environmental Justice Society hosts Stories from the Clean Room: a documentary about workers who are dying to make the electronics we cannot live without.
Stories from the Clean Room is a documentary exposing the dirty truths about toxic chemicals and harm to workers in the electronics industry. The film, made by SHARPS (Supporters for the Health And Rights of People in the Semiconductor industry) in South Korea, highlights the voices of dying electronics workers and exposes the industry’s refusal to identify the toxic chemicals that made them ill. IPEN Participating Organizations in over 20 countries with growing electronics production sectors will screen the film as part of a global campaign to demand toxics-free electronics.
This screening will be introduced by and will be followed by discussion with Seunghoon Oh, a PhD researcher at Durham University.
This event is free and open public.
Date and time: Thursday 31 January 2019, 19:00 – 21:00 GMT
