Twenty years is a long time to wait for justice, proper compensation, the freedom to live without fear from poisons in your drinking water, proper medical studies into the illnesses that have ravaged your health and your family’s for two decades. To this day, Union Carbide and its 100% parent Dow Chemical refuse to divulge the components of the chemical cloud that devastated Bhopal on “that night” twenty years ago. They refuse to share medical studies they performed into the effects of the gases. They continue to refuse to appear before a court in Bhopal, where Union Carbide faces criminal charges for “culpable homicide”, they refuse either to clean-up or pay for a clean up of the derelict and devastated factory site where piles of poisons lie in the open air and have contamined the soil and local drinking water supplies. They continue to claim that “all legal issues” have were ended by the 1989 settlement despite the fact that the present criminal proceedings were specifically re-opened by the Indian Supreme Court in 1991, in a judgement modifying the 1989 settlement. They continue to apply pressure through their allies in the US government on the government of India to take little or no action against them. Dow continues to assert that it has no responsibility for Union Carbide’s real and potential liabitlies in India, despite having accepted responsibility for Union Carbide’s asbestos liabilities in the United States. Dow continues to rampage like an out-of-control rogue through the environmental and human rights of people not only in Bhopal but elsewhere in the world, including the USA and particularly in its own home state of Michigan. Official channels have consistently failed the people of Bhopal and Dow’s other victims around the world, it is only public pressure that has ever brought any movement. This is why we ask you to sign the online petition.
