Samsung security officers in front of the room where are held the negotiations between the company and the SHARPS organisation (Supporters for the Health And Rights of People in the Semiconductor industry). It is the first time in its history that Samsung accepts to discuss issues related to the semi-conductor industry. Victims and families want Samsung leaders to recognise their responsibilities in the illness of certain workers. Samsung has always denied the link between illness and working environment. The negotiations started in May 2014. A new round is held every two weeks. Each round can last for 6-7 hours. Seoul, South Korea. July 2014.
