"Dow will have to kill us all,
because we will never give up..."
Those who survived Dow-Carbide's chemical violence have stories
to tell: of lost lives, ruined dreams, children poisoned, and hope
- that Dow will be forced to pay for its crimes when good people
join the struggle for justice.
Survivors of Bhopal
by Dow: Worldwide
aim a blowtorch at my eyes pour acid down my throat
strip the tissue from my lungs. drown me in my own blood. choke
my baby to death in front of me. make me watch her struggles as
she dies. cripple my children. let pain be their daily and their
only playmate. spare me nothing. wreck my health so I can no longer
feed my family. watch us starve. say it's nothing to do with you.
don’t ever say sorry. poison our water. cause monsters to
be born among us. make us curse God. stunt our living children’s
growth. for twenty years ignore our cries. teach me that my rage
is as useless as my tears. prove to me beyond all doubt that there
is no justice in the world. you are a wealthy american corporation
and I am a gas victim of bhopal.

ALL LIVE IN
"The year 2003 was a special
year in the history of the campaign for justice in Bhopal. It was the
year when student and youth supporters from at least 30 campuses in the
US and India took action against Dow Chemical or in support of the demands
of the Bhopal survivors. As we enter the 20th year of the unfolding Bhopal
disaster, we can, with your support, convey to Dow Chemical that the fight
for justice in Bhopal is getting stronger and will continue till justice
is done. We look forward to your continued support and good wishes, and
hope that our joint struggle will pave the way for a just world free of
the abuse of corporate power."
