Five Bhopal based organizations working among the neighbourhood residents of the abandoned Union Carbide factory  today welcomed the legal initiative of the central government in the state High Court seeking Rs 350 crores from Dow Chemical, current owner of Union Carbide  as the first installment towards the cost of the clean up and remediation of soil and groundwater in and around the factory.

The organizations also expressed satisfaction with today’s order of the High Court directing Dow Chemical to disclose its assets, liabilities and other business interests in India and to also to produce its merger documents in the next 15 days.

Two of the five organizations who are interveners in the ongoing case in the state High Court concerning legal liability for the environmental damage due to hazardous waste have been directed by a double bench of Justice Arun Mishra and S.C. Sinha today to make their submission on the issue of addressing the issues of hazardous waste and environmental remediation with seven days. The central and state governments have also been issued similar directions.

The organizations said that they found it interesting that corporate lawyer Harish Salve replaced Congress I spokesperson Abhishek M Singhvi as the counsel for Dow Chemical in the proceedings in the High Court today.

“We hope that with its new found vigour, the central government will soon accept the offer of technical and financial assistance by the European Union for a scientific assessment of depth and spread of toxic contamination and remediation measures.” said Rashida Bee, President of the Bhopal Gas Peedit Mahila Stationery Karmchari Sangh. She said that on June 17 the European Union has made the offer to the Indian government which is to be funded by the Indo-German Environment Programme. 23 members of the European Parliament have written to the Prime Minister on June 23 expressing their support to the European Union’s offer of assistance.

The organizations expressed regret that the state government is yet to catch up with the central government on the matter of toxic contamination. “Fifteen to twenty thousand people are still forced to drink contaminated ground water because of the negligence of the state government that was provided sufficient funds for supply of clean water four years back” said Mr. Balkrishna Namdeo, President of the Bhopal Gas Peedit Nirashrit Pension Bhogi Sangharsh Morcha.

The organizations said that they will present the opinions of their experts on the latest reports of the National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI), Nagpur, Indian Institute of Chemical Technology (IICT), Hyderabad and National Geophysical Research Institute (NGRI), Hyderabad on the depth and spread of hazardous waste and contamination, to the Indian government by the end of this month. Experts in hydrogeology, toxicology and hazardous waste management from India, UK, Germany and Netherlands will be contributing to this critique.

आदिवासियों ने एंडरसन के पुतले को फांसी दी महंगा पानी सस्ता खून वाह री सरकार वाह रे कानून

प्रेस विज्ञप्ति

बैतूल, २१ जून
बैतूल जिले के दर्जनों गाँव के आदिवासी महिला पुरषों ने एंडरसन के पुतले को फांसी दी. भोपाल गैस कांड में सरकार और न्यापालिका के विफल होने के चलते आज आदिवासियों ने समाजवादी जन परिषद् के बेनर तले बैतूल शहर के लल्ली चौक में ये कार्क्रम किया. कार्यक्रम में सेकड़ों की संख्या में आदिवासी शामिल थे.
आदिवासी नारे लगा रहे थे कंपनी राज खतम करो- जनता का राज कायम करो. महंगा पानी सस्ता खून वारी सरकर वाह रे कानून. एंडरसन को फँसी दो. भोपाल गैस पीडितो को न्याय दो. आदिवासियों के ये विरोध इस बात को दर्शाता है की भोपाल गैस कांड के इस फैसले ने आदिवासियों तक के मन से न्याय व्यवस्था और सरकार से विश्वास उठा दिया है. आदिवासी नेता मंगल सिंह ने कहा की जैसे अंग्रेज अपने अफसर को बचाते थे और आदिवासियों को फांसी देते थे, या गोली से मार देते थे वैसे ही भोपाल गैस कांड के मामले में एक बार फिर हो गया है. हजारों लोगो को मौत की नीद सुलाने वाला और लाखो लोगो को जिन्दगी भर के दर्द देने वाला एंडरसन आज खुला घूम रहा है और भारत में रहने वाले उसके करमचारियों को भी सरकार और हमारी नयायपालिका कुछ नहीं कर पाई. कार्यक्रम में मौजूद काबरा गाँव के आदिवासी हन्नू ने बताया की जंगल जमीन जोतने के कारन उसे चार महीने झूठे केस में जेल में रहना पड़ा. इसी तरह हरदा जिले के देगा गाँव के सूबेदार को भी तीन महीने जेल में गुजरना पड़े. आदिवासियों का सवाल था की पेट की खातिर जमीन जोतने वाले को जेल और हजारों लाखो को मरने वालों को एक दिन भी जेल नहीं जाना पड़ा. ये कैसा कानून है.
आदिवासियों ने आज के विकास के तरीके पर भी सवाल उठाये उनका कहना था की जिस तरह के विकास को हमारी सरकार बड़ा रही उसमे उनका समाज तो आज नहीं कल पूरा खत्तम होने वाला है. लेकिन इस अविवेकी विकास की मार से कोई नहीं बच पायेगा.
अदिबसियों ने बैतूल शहर में रैली निकली और पर्चे बाते .
