We're educating our campus communities about the Bhopal disaster,
challenging Dow's relationship with our institutions of learning,
threatening Dow's ability to recruit college graduates, organizing
campaigns for divestment, undermining Dow's reputation and targeting
Dow directly by protesting the company and its Board of Directors.
We're demanding JUSTICE - and today we represent the largest student
movement against Dow in a generation.
What are we doing? We’re taking action,
targeting both Dow and the Indian Government and demanding justice
for the victims of Bhopal.
Declaration to Dow
This Student Declaration to Dow was issued on May 5th, 2005, and
was presented to Dow at their Shareholder Meeting. “We are
outraged,” the students write. “We believe the fact
that Dow-Carbide has not acted to stop the ongoing contamination
of tens of thousands - for which it is responsible - is inhumane,
unjust, and immoral.”
Share the Struggle
Read the three-part (one/two/three)
conversation between Paul Damore, who grew up in the shadow of Dow's
polluting headquarters in Michigan, and Tahira "Ruby"
Sultan, who survived the Bhopal gas disaster and has lived in the
shadow of Carbide's abandoned factory ever since. "On different
continents in two very different communities, Paul and Ruby are
battling Dow Chemical's refusal to take responsibility for its legacy
of pollution, shady dealings and disregard for human life."
