In the heart of the Romanian city of Turda only a short distance from the international tourist attraction Salina Turda (Turda Saltmines), on the ruins of a former chemical plant, children and adults breathe mercury vapor and carcinogenic dust while collecting a few pounds of scrap. They have been doing it for 10 years and nobody told them it was fatal.
Followed by a Q&A session with Andrei Ciurcanu and Carmen Avram on environmental investigations.
