1. World day against child labour 2005

    This year World Day Against Child Labour (WDACL) called our attention to a form of work that is dangerous to children in every way; child labour in quarrying and mining. It is physically dangerous because of the heavy and awkward loads, the strenuousness of the work, the unstable underground structures, the tools, the toxic chemicals, and the exposure to sun and water.
