PEOPLE WORK CANE FIELDS WITHOUT PROTECTION FROM HERBICIDES By Ramón Humberto Colás Castillo, Cuba Free Press.
LAS TUNAS - During the season of irrigating the cane plantations with water carrying herbicides in this area, people are noticing that the plantation workers wear no adequate protection from the chemicals. Most passers-by realize that these workers come into direct contact with the highly toxic materials and are given no special clothing or foods to help protect them against the noxious effects of any chemical products.
