Bhopal Survivors Demand Justice
As a result of its merger with the Union Carbide Corporation in 2001 Dow has inherited the legacy of the 1984 Bhopal gas tragedy. This is not only the world’s worst industrial disaster to date but its physical and emotional repercussions continue to traumatize the capital of the central Indian province of Madhya Pradesh to this day.
Instead of atoning for the tragedy, properly cleaning up and compensating victims, Dow continues with Union Carbide's policy of betrayal and denial.
The betrayal is such, that while few of us have heard of Bhopal’s spectacular eleventh century artificial lakes and impressive collection of mosques, palaces and bazaars, we are all familiar with the city’s suffering at the hands of these two companies.
