Residents of a Chinese "cancervillage" have scored a rare victory against one of the heavily pollutingcompanies that has laid waste to their country's environment.

中国“癌症村”的村民与一家重污染企业展开斗争,罕见地取得了胜利。这家公司破坏了乡村村民的生活环境。

The Fujian Solid Waste Disposal Company setup shop in Fujian province's Qingpulingvillage in 2000 and specialised in incinerating medical waste from Fuzhou, the regionalcapital.

2000年,福建省固体废物处置有限公司在福建青圃岭村建成,该公司从事处置省会福州市的医疗临床废物。

However, improper disposal techniquesresulted in an environmental catastrophe as the plant pumped toxic emissionsinto the air.

然而,不当的处理技术导致环境遭到破坏,工厂向大气排放了有毒气体。

Local streams turned black, trees began todie, and a spate of suspicious cancer cases swept through at least eighthouseholds.

当地的河流变成了黑色,树木开始死去,至少有8户人家受到了一连串可疑癌症案例的影响。

Liu Jinmei, a Beijing-based environmental lawyer who took up the villagers'cause, said that while it had not been possible to prove a direct link betweentheir illnesses, including cancer, and the pollution, the risk to public healthwas undeniable.

北京的环保律师刘进美(LiuJinmei)接下了这个村子的案例。她说,虽然可能无法证实村民所患的包括癌症在内的疾病与污染有直接的联系,但污染对公众健康造成威胁是不可否认的。

"The farmland is near the plant, sothe dust and ash coming from the incineration falls there, as well ascontaminating the nearby streams used for irrigation," she said."Villagers would get red rashes on their skin when it came into contactwith water from the streams."

“农田就在工厂附近,焚烧废物产生的灰尘都落到了田里,同时也污染了附近可灌溉农田的溪流。一旦接触溪水,村民的皮肤就会起红疹”。

Tired of seeing their community destroyed,394 locals engaged a group of lawyers, including Ms Liu, and launched a legalchallenge against the plant's owners in 2009.

由于再也看不下自己的家园遭到破坏,394名当地居民聘请了包括刘女士在内的律师团队,他们还于2009年用法律向工厂所有者发起挑战。

A subsequent investigation found the areahad been massively contaminated with dioxin, a highly toxic chemical compound.

随后的调查发现,这个村子遭到大范围二氧杂芑污染,二氧杂芑是一种剧毒化学品。

Dioxin can cause reproductive anddevelopmental problems, damage to the immune system, liver problems and cancer,according to the World Health Organisation.

根据世界卫生组织,二氧杂芑会引发生殖和发育问题,对免疫系统造成破坏,还会引发肝脏问题和诱发癌症。

Last year China's environment ministry forthe first time admitted to the existence of so-called "cancervillages", highly polluted communities where industrial development isblamed for a spike in the number of cancer cases.

中国环境保护部首次承认所谓“癌症村”的存在,在受到严重污染的居住地,人们将癌症的高发率归咎于工业发展。

Official statistics suggest there are atleast 245 such villages across Chinabut experts believe the true figure is far higher.

官方发布的数据表明,中国至少有245个这样的村落,但专家们认为真实的数据要高出很多。

Ms Liu, the environmental lawyer, saidQingpuling's villagers could not yet claim complete victory despite thepolluting company having been ordered to pay out six million yuan (£588,415) in compensation this week.

环保律师刘女士说,青圃岭的迅敏还不能宣告取得了彻底的胜利,尽管造成污染的公司已经被命令于本周支付600万元(588,415英镑)的赔偿金。

However, an increasing number of successfullawsuits against polluters showed progress was being made in holding them toaccount for environmental crimes.

然而,起诉污染公司的成功案例正在增加,这表明让这些公司为环保犯罪承担责任的努力取得了进展。

"We hope that, through media coverage,more and more environmental victims will stand up and speak out, using legalweapons to defend their rights," said Ms Liu.

刘女士说,“我们希望通过媒体报道,会有更多的环境受害者站起来发出自己的声音,拿起法律武器来捍卫自己的权利”。
