Five women survivors of the December ’84 Union Carbide disaster in Bhopal stopped taking water on the second day of their fast at 1 AM on November 11, 2014. Along with 1000 survivors of Bhopal at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi they are demanding :
- Additional compensation of Rs. 1 lakh for all survivors who have earlier received only Rs. 25 thousand for lifelong injuries.
- Revision of figures of death and injury caused by the gas disaster in the Curative petition filed by the central government for additional compensation from Union Carbide and Dow Chemical.
The Bhopal survivors have been agitating on these two issues from July 2010 and have conveyed their decision to go on waterless fast to the Prime Minister and the Minister of Chemicals (nodal ministry on Bhopal disaster) on September 12, 2014.
Using the form below, please send a fax each to the Prime Minister and the Minister of Chemicals and Fertilizers in support of the Bhopal survivors’ demands in this 30th anniversary year of the Bhopal disaster.
UPDATE [14/11/2014, 5.30pm]: After sending hundreds of faxes to both the PMO and the Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers, we have a delegation from the ministry coming to meet the survivors at the protest site. Keeping this in mind and working hours of the government, the faxing form has been closed for now.
Thank you everyone for your support!
