Fax the Demands of the Survivors to The Prime Minister

Five women survivors of the December ’84 Union Carbide disaster in Bhopal stopped taking water on the second day of their fast at 1 AM on November 11, 2014. Along with 1000 survivors of Bhopal at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi they are demanding :

  1. Additional compensation of Rs. 1 lakh for all survivors who have earlier received only Rs. 25 thousand for lifelong injuries.
  1. Revision of figures of death and injury caused by the gas disaster in the Curative petition filed by the central government for additional compensation from Union Carbide and Dow Chemical.

The Bhopal survivors have been agitating on these two issues from July 2010 and have conveyed their decision to go on waterless fast to the Prime Minister and the Minister of Chemicals (nodal ministry on Bhopal disaster) on September 12, 2014.

Using the form below, please send a fax each to the Prime Minister and the Minister of Chemicals and Fertilizers in support of the Bhopal survivors’ demands in this 30th anniversary year of the Bhopal disaster.

UPDATE [14/11/2014, 5.30pm]: After sending hundreds of faxes to both the PMO and the Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers, we have a delegation from the ministry coming to meet the survivors at the protest site. Keeping this in mind and working hours of the government, the faxing form has been closed for now.

Thank you everyone for your support!

Old Warren Anderson Posters

The death of Warren Anderon, the CEO of Union Carbide at the time of the disaster, has only just come to light, even though he died over a month ago.  Since 1984, the survivors of the world’s worst chemical disaster have been suffering because of the actions of this man. For 30 years the survivors have asked for Anderson – the “Butcher of Bhopal” – to go in front a court of law and be judged for his negligent actions. But he refused to submit to a higher power than himself, and the United States government shielded him.

His death, like most of his life since the disaster, was a secret – he kept himself hidden away, refusing to admit to the fact that he and his company could have prevented the disaster from occurring if they had chosen to. Instead –  as CEO he put profits over people – and because of this, the survivors of Bhopal will never forgive him.

Over the years, ICJB has made many posters demanding the extradition of Warren Anderson. Below are some of our best anti-Anderson and anti-UCC posters. Check out even more on our revamped Campaign Resources page.

Post from the Past: 2002 – Bhopal & Babylon: When Anderson Was Discovered Living It Up in the Hamptons

The post below was originally published by the editors of Bhopal.net over 12 years ago, on September 8, 2002. Even though Anderson died in September 2014, the fight for justice lives on. This post’s original conclusion, “[Anderson] and his wife must have been hoping Bhopal had gone away. But Bhopal will never go away. Not until there is justice.”  still rings true – Bhopal will never leave Warren Anderson. He will go down in history as a man who knowingly put profit and greed over  the lives of tens of thousands of people. He will go down in history as a murderer.

BRIDGEHAMPTON, LONG ISLAND: Ex-Carbide CEO Warren Anderson is clearly startled by all the media attention focussed on him since a court in Bhopal reaffirmed on 28 August that he is wanted for the homicide of 20,000 Bhopalis, and called for his immediate extradition. He must really have thought he’d got away with it. Warren has been ignoring the court’s summonses and Interpol’s arrest warrant for more than a decade. How is it, Channel 4 asked last week, that US authorities have apparently been unable to trace him, when it turns out he has been living openly at his house in Long Island’s exclusive Hamptons district? (Channel 4 found the address, incidentally, on our website.)
