Burmese Migrant workers
Description: The Nasawat Apparel factory in Mae Sot in the Tak province has a reputation for slave-like working conditions During December 2001, after the workforce had not been paid for three months, workers tried to organise a strike. The employer called the police and five of the workers leaders were beaten and deported back to Burma. The remaining 360 workers were forcefully evicted from a temple were they had taken refuge, here they are being taken to Thai immigration holding pens before deportation. January 2004
