Minjian released an exclusive investigative story (as it has been censored by the Propaganda Department) about 4 mysterious deaths from lung cancer (zh). The 4 victims were workers in a pharmacy factory in Chongqin. One of the victims, Zheng, suspected that the cancer was related to chemical leaking as all of them were working in the same room. Before his death, he demanded a thorough investigation. In March 2007, although the Hygiene department suspended the factory ward and fined the company for not having enough protection for workers’ safety, the factory and the authorities refused to admit the direct responsibility for the workers’ death.
