Screening Tour 2013

     

Brought to you by

The International Campaign for Justice in Bhopal, North America.



 

The Bhopal gas disaster, as well as the slew of chemical disasters impacting communities around the world, reminds us of the need for people-power to hold corporate-power accountable. In preparation for the 30th anniversary, the International Campaign for Justice in Bhopal, North America, alongside Amnesty International Canada/USA, the Association for India's Development (AID) and our local allies, is organizing a North American Screening Tour of the critically acclaimed documentary, Bhopali. By bringing this film to a community near you, we hope to build solidarity with survivors & spread the message of this 29 year old struggle for corporate accountability. Please find the trailer at: www.bhopalithemovie.com   

But we need your help. Many of you have recently contributed in response to our 2013 Donor Mailing, and we are grateful for your support. Those of you seeking a new opportunity to donate, now is your chance!

Our goal is to raise $10,000 to cover the expenses of this tour by November 1st 2013

 

As we do not accept funds from corporations or governments, we rely on supporters like you to help us achieve our goals. We are asking for your generous support to make this screening tour a reality! If each recipient of this email donates $10 – we will reach our goal.

 

 

 

Accompanying this tour will be Bhopali survivor-activist, Sanjay Verma. Sanjay lost 7 members of his immediate family (parents and 5 siblings) in the Bhopal gas disaster, and has become a key voice in this ongoing struggle for justice.
