In Indonesia, thousands of children work on tobacco plantations
Thousands of children aged 8 years working in dangerous conditions on tobacco plantations in Indonesia, exposed to the risk of developing cancer, respiratory diseases and poisoning by nicotine, according to a new report, Human Rights Watch (HRW).

The child is exposed to nicotine, toxic chemicals and high temperatures throughout Indonesia, the fifth largest in the world producer of tobacco.

"I always threw up when I harvest," said Ayu researchers. "Since I was a kid, I was in the field. My parents grew tobacco. Mostly I helped my parents and sometimes neighbors. I have an older sister, older brother, and two younger brothers and sisters. They also help, "he said.

The report based on interviews HRW calls on the government and tobacco companies Indonesia to forbid children to work in tobacco, as well as to enhance performance "to detect and eliminate dangerous child labour in a broader sense ".

The Indonesian Ministry of foreign Affairs declined to comment on the report. The Ministry of manpower, which regulates labor Affairs, did not respond to a CNN request for comment. Under Indonesian law, children under the age of 18 years are forbidden to perform hazardous work, including in an environment with harmful chemicals.

According to the International labour organization (ILO), more than 1.5 million children aged 10 to 17 years work in agriculture in Indonesia. It is not clear how many of them work in the tobacco industry.
