Albanian Chrome Miners Threaten to Resume Hunger Strike

After abandoning the underground hunger strike last weekend, the Albanian chrome miners of Bulqiza continue to protest in front of the offices of ACR, the concession company that operates the mine, which is an arm of the Austrian DCM Decometal.

The miners have warned to resume their hunger strike, aboveground this time, in case their requests are not met. It appears that the offer of the ACR administrator for the increase of wages by 20%, transparency of investments in the mine and the improvement of work conditions has so far been rejected by the miners, local press reported on Wednesday.
