Tell the US Govt: Don’t Shield Dow

 Click here to sign the petition!

You can shine a spotlight on injustice and shame the US government into changing how it deals with corporate criminals by signing our petition to demand the US Government stop shielding Dow Chemical from accountability for its crimes in Bhopal, India .

Press Release for the Campaign

Greed, carelessness, and a callous disregard for human life – these words sum up the causes of the 1984 Bhopal gas disaster. Dow Chemical, an American corporation, and its subsidiary the Union Carbide Corporation are legally responsible for the 1984 Bhopal disaster. But Dow-Carbide has refused to show up to court and face criminal charges that have been pending in India for 25+ years. Dow-Carbide has gotten away with this because the US government keeps acting as Dow’s special protector, guarding it from all accusations and accountability.

Right now the White House and the US Department of Justice are shielding Dow-Carbide from FOUR court notices sent by the Indian Judicial system, which per international treaty must be served to Dow. It’s time we told the US Department of Justice to do its job properly and abide by international law! Sign the petition now!

Learn more about the US Government’s sordid role in Bhopal.
