wants to show us what's happening inside the camp so we follow him with a hidden camera. the air is filled with the stench of smoke garbage and feces. many refugees have taken matters into their own hands to stay warm now that it's getting colder they simply lied old all of trees. these trees belong to local residents delio schofield s. and still use visits his fields he has to struggle to maintain his composure. well off to come in but about all these trees are burnt anybody there's nothing left up a bit of these trees won't grow again they're finished there one hundred twenty trees and now there's only four of all of the others and nobody cares the authorities won't stop this or compensate us every night these people cut down the trees and burn them when i get there with. the local mayor nikos truck haley's has

just returned from talks with the greek government and athens the news isn't good. if the situation goes on like this it won't take long before we have physical confrontation up to now we are tolerating the looting of people's assets and it's fortunate that things haven't become violent yet. but it's a matter of time before that happens. left his country to escape violence he doesn't want to be lumped together with lawbreakers he wants to leave less because but for now a ferry take it to athens remains just a distant dream. it's called manual scavenging the cleaning of sewers in india by human hand a rather archaic term for an illegal and dangerous occupation it obscures the fact
5:23 am
that this is a task for the lower castes. every morning shows up for the trial that field. anywhere would want to do. as a manual scavenger he cleans block drains and gotten in dentist sunni has been doing this for six years he owns anywhere between four hundred to eight hundred rupees a day so that's about five to ten euros. i almost threw up the first day here until then i've never cleaned the toilet in my own home the stench was disgusting i nearly quit. but i had to feed my two children since i'd lost another job so i carried on made a bit of planning as. the work is extremely dangerous there's no machinery or safety. sometimes so he has to undress and squeeze into the sewers and cocked up.
5:24 am
he says he's developed skin attitudes his eyes burn from the toxic gases so our labors belong to the balmiki community. that sits at the bottom of india's cost their work opens them to prejudice and discrimination. some people treat us as if we're not human and we're human too now you're sitting here it's very dirty but people cover their noses when they walk past why is that. this settlement on the outskirts of debby is home to dallas formerly known as untouchables. two months ago three of its residents choked to death in a septic tank in a cop outs back on three were cleaners none had safety equipment. one of them was nanny killing his wife who is still waiting for compensation from the company. my children don't understand that their father is not coming back our world has
