Rights Groups Intensify Campaign Against Firestone [Liberia]

Three (3) human rights groups have threatened legal action against the American-owned Firestone Rubber Plantation Company [part of Bridgestone] for alleged human rights violations and gross abuses of Labor Law on the plantation in Harbel, Margibi County. The three human rights institutions, the Catholic Justice and Peace Commission (JPC) headed by Attorney Augustine Toe, the Liberia Democracy Watch (LDW) of Jerome Verdier and the Foundation for International Dignity (FIND) of Kofi Woods have alleged that the American-run company was mistreating workers at the plantation.
