India – West Bengal: A former tea worker looking for pebbles and stones along the Diana riverbed at Red Bank Tea Estate, in the Dooars region. The garden, which houses 888 workers out of a population of 5,000 people, has been closed since 2013, forcing its workers to resort to stonecrushing along the riverbanks in order to survive. At the end of 2014, the tea estate was taken over by the government, in order to initiate emergency relief procedures for its population.
