A Docker Beaten Almost To Death By A gendarme

Image may contain: 1 person

It's a week now, since Dockers of the Douala Seaport staged a sit down strike at the main entrance to the Douala Seaport.

These foremen who load and unload ships say they earn as little as '750 F CFA' daily, for unloading 50 tonnes, which they say is similar to slavery, reason why decided not to go back to work if government doesn't intervene with a Practical workable solution.

Sources report that the young man in the picture is a docker, who together with his colleagues, are sitting at the strike spot, when uniform men came to intimidate them as usual but because he verbally and physically refused to be intimidated, got the beatings of his life from a gendarme officer.

He was rushed to the hospital, where sources say he is in very bad shape.
