I congratulate all the Bhopalis and those other supporters who had been fighting for so many days for a noble cause and finally remained successful.I congratulate once again to those who had been physically involved in the campaign.
CONGRATULATIONS!!! Its indeed a victory!! The consistency this campaign has shown is really commendable and a fine example.

Yes, indeed, amazing, and a great and inspiring example of how to campaign – of how to move together. Of what ‘movement’ is about. Congratulations to all of you !
Thanks also for laying out here the various components of the Bhopal campaign, as you see them. This is very interesting, and very important for all of us to know, how you felt you managed to gain this great victory, and – as it were – ‘how the Bhopal movement spoke’ : What the words were, and how you put them together.
All strength to all of you for the next steps, both on getting the state to make material the concessions (which the recent report from Nity seems to suggest is happening) and, crucially, on Dow.
I am ccing this message to listserves of people who I am sure would also like to know of this.
In solidarity –

i know this is very belated, but i want to say congratulations on the big victories. it makes me very happy and hopeful that good things are possible. congratulations, you are a machine!
Congratulations on a victory well won!
Congratulations on your achievement on behalf of affected people for
Bhopal. It has been an amazing campaign and I thank and congratulate
all the people involved in it for their dedication and perseverance.
It is unformtunate that such an effort was necessary for securing the
natural rights of the affected people. The government should have
responded naturally and automatically long back and ensured that
natural justice was done as a matter of humanity and national pride.
Just shows that a few concerned people have to fight hard to achieve
what they believe in.
The fight is not over till the governement implements its promises.
All the best.
It always amazes me how a tiny contribution can have such a major impact on other people’s lives
congratulations for ur victory based on ur hard work determination.
This is wonderful, Ryan! I’m so happy for the people of Bhopal and it shows how people power can work. A special word of thanks and congratulations to you: I know how tireless you’ve been on this issue.
I just wanted to congratulate you personally. I am sure the fight is far from over, but Students for Bhopal has accomplished something truly astounding — as I’m sure you’re aware. Thank you for working so hard on something so important. I look forward to the day when the other two demands are met as well.
