Dec 2-3 marked the anniversary of the disaster that happened in 1984 A government affidavit in 2006 stated the gas leak caused 558,125 injuries including 38,478 temporary partial and approximately 3,900 severely and permanently disabling injuries and over 15000 deaths.
This is a shot of my T-shirt purchased in Bhopal. Union Carbide was responsible for the disaster Dow Chemical bought the company in 2001. Some 1st world corporations in 3rd world countries take advantage of cheap labour, inadequate safety regulations, no regulations to max their profit margins. Just exploitation.
The poor people there are still coping with the results and trying to hold the corporation and its CEO responsible. Who is responsible?
Currently Dow is suing the Government of Canada for $2 million, through NAFTA’s Chapter 11 investor-state dispute process, as part of a challenge to a Quebec ban on the use of lawn pesticides.
Is DOW Chemical in the Tar Sands? Where are the Tar Sands.
