Representatives from the UK Asbestos Support Groups’ Forum, along with internationally recognised medical professionals, are meeting with Cape to discuss our demand that Cape pay £10 million towards medical research. As a goodwill gesture the Forum has postponed its plans to ramp up our ‘Cape Must Pay’ campaign.
Cape were one of the leading manufacturers of asbestos products in the UK from the 1950s to the 1980s. A 2019 legal case unearthed documents proving that, from the 1960s, Cape, who are now a subsidiary of the Altrad Group of companies, deliberately withheld evidence on the risks its asbestos products posed to human life.
Please sign the Cape Must Pay petition.
