The Bleeding Dockyard Tuzla: Counting the Dead

According to Radikal, Turkish daily, (1), two more contract-workers died in the Tuzla dockyard in the last days. The first dead took place on the “Selah Dockyard” as the 26 year-old worker Deniz Kasikeman died after a massive metal block fell on to him. The second dead took place in the “Desan Dockyard” during a night-swift, this time 31 year-old Murat Caliskan fell from the ship, due to limited illumination.

unfortunately the counter of dead does not stop in Tuzla.  We witness frequently scenes remind the cruel days of capitalism during the first Industrial Revolution.
