Wednesday, April 25, 2018, Chicago – Today, stockholders in DowDuPont cast their final votes on three shareholder resolutions addressing the company’s continuing liability for the Bhopal chemical disaster. The resolutions describe increasing shareholder concern that management is mishandling the ongoing Bhopal controversy and call on DowDuPont to disclose the cost of this controversy upon the company’s reputation, finances, and its ability to invest in expanding Asian markets.
You can shine a spotlight on injustice and shame the US government into changing how it deals with corporate criminals by signing our petition to demand the US Government stop shielding Dow Chemical from accountability for its crimes in Bhopal, India .
Greed, carelessness, and a callous disregard for human life – these words sum up the causes of the 1984 Bhopal gas disaster. Dow Chemical, an American corporation, and its subsidiary the Union Carbide Corporation are legally responsible for the 1984 Bhopal disaster. But Dow-Carbide has refused to show up to court and face criminal charges that have been pending in India for 25+ years. Dow-Carbide has gotten away with this because the US government keeps acting as Dow’s special protector, guarding it from all accusations and accountability.
Right now the White House and the US Department of Justice are shielding Dow-Carbide from FOUR court notices sent by the Indian Judicial system, which per international treaty must be served to Dow. It’s time we told the US Department of Justice to do its job properly and abide by international law! Sign the petition now!
Learn more about the US Government’s sordid role in Bhopal.
Don’t Delay: Sign the petition today!
