Joe Harawira, a worker in New Zealand, has fought against industry and the government…and won. Previously a worker in a sawmill in Whakatane, Joe had good reasons to believe that he had been exposed, like many others, to chemical wood treatments which are very detrimental to health, real poison which continues to seriously pollute sawmills and nature. Joe fought to bring the truth to light and reveal what was behind the death and illnesses which were affecting his community.
