Support the Workers from COMPLICIT

$1,470 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 23 people in 21 months

"Complicit", a documentary currently screening at the London Human Rights Watch Film Festival, the Geneva International Film Festival and Forum on Human Rights and other upcoming festivals in Canada, Australia and the U.S. follows the story of Yi YeTing who is struggling with occupational leukemia and trying to obtain compensation from his employer.

Yi YeTing, wanting to help others, works for a non-profit that assists workers with occupational illness and injuries. He discovers there are dozens of workers in his local area who were poisoned while making smartphones. Through research in the community, he discovers a leukemia cluster in the neighborhood surrounding Appleʼs main supplier Foxconn. Yiʼs research leads him to several workers and their families trying to survive while burdened with their health care costs. He also helps teenage workers who were paralyzed by N-Hexane while cleaning screens in electronic factories. Powerful forces are unleashed as he confronts local factories, putting his own safety at risk.

Yi YeTing has been through over 35 chemotherapies. He had to quit his work at Labor Action China in 2016 due to health problems. Since then, the family has no income. He and  his wife (who also appears in the film) have a 6-year old son and a 3-year-old daughter to support. Each of the workers and their families in the film deal with immense economic struggles in addition to the continued effort to fight their illnesses.

Through this funding page we hope to raise $20,000 USD to help the workers in this film and their families.

Dear All,
The workers from COMPLICIT are generally doing well this year. Our main character Yi Yeting came to Geneva for the Europe premiere last March and received a standing ovation. He has been invited to the U.S. but hasn't been able to come due to the surveillance he's under. There's a major human rights crackdown happening in China. We wouldn't be able to make COMPLICIT now if we tried.
Thanks again for your wonderful contributions - 100% of funds received go directly to the courageous individuals in the film.
All the best, Heather White, Producer, Co-Director
