Contents Sulphur slaves
Summary "Like his father and grandfather before him, Syakur works collecting sulphur from the Mount Welirang volcano in the Indonesian province of East Java. The work is arduous. Each day, the men carry loads of sulphur four kilometres down the mountain to their camp, in baskets carried on a bamboo pole across their shoulders. The sulphur fumes affect their health, rotting their teeth, and making them cough incessantly. Once a week, the sulphur collectors make the twenty-kilometre journey to the small town of Tretes, where they sell their sulphur to a cooperative. They are paid less than two Australian dollars per fifty kilos. Every year, Syakur makes the pilgrimage to another volcano, Mt Bromo. Presented by Silvio Rivier.
