Union Boss Sets Himself Ablaze In Protest At Press Conference He Called Together

share on:

A trade union leader in Mongolia set himself ablaze to protest against the proposed sale of his country’s coal mining industry to China.

The unnamed trade unionist had called for a press conference in which he and others told the media about the appalling problems faced by miners in Mongolia.

In a short mumbled statement he said: ‘The government no longer supports our company, families of the workers are forced to starve, this is why I will burn myself for the people of Mongolia and our children.’

He poured liquid on his suit before setting himself alight as the startled press pack reacted with horror to the unfolding drama.
