Record Factory: Poisoning families with lead

In September 2007, the Record battery factory, located in Sitio del Niño, closed operations by order of the Ministry of Health. Yet, the factory contains lead slag that keeps contaminating everything that surrounds the complex.

According to the authorities, thousands of people are affected by lead poisoning.

Three years later, the government has declared an environmental emergency in the area, while neighbours and lead continue to live together.
