SUPPORT THE MARCH TO DELHI
More than 130 survivors of the 1984 Bhopal gas disaster began a march on foot to New Delhi on February 20th 2006. Twenty two years post the world’s worst industrial disaster the battle for survival, justice and dignity is still on. More than 20,000 people in Bhopal are forced to consume water poisoned by the countless tones of chemical waste from the abandoned Union Carbide factory. This has created a new generation of victims. Medical facilities for survivors is virtually non-existent, and survivors have to beg and bribe to access health care. Unemployment and desperation are at an all-time high. For 22 years none of the Indian Governments has taken a serious stand on the issue, reducing the notions of democracy and justice to a mere farce.
The march is the biggest and most important action ever organized by the Bhopal campaign, but it won’t be successful without support from you.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
By signing a letter of solidarity to the Prime Minister of India urging him to accept the demands of the survivors.
