25 YEARS OF COURAGE

Activist Toolkit – 25th Anniversary of the Bhopal Disaster

December 3, 2009


Thank you for planning to take action to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the Bhopal Gas Disaster!  The anniversary is an important opportunity to remind people that the Bhopal disaster did not end in 1984 – it is an ongoing disaster, and the struggle for justice has been growing for 25 years!  This anniversary is an opportunity to bring more people into this important movement, to hold Dow Chemical Company accountable through our grassroots power, and to remind the Indian Government to keep the promises they’ve made to the Bhopal Survivors.

CONTACT INFORMATION

Make sure to contact ICJB U.S. Coordinator, Shana Ortman, to let us know that you are taking action and let us know if you need anything!
