Bhopal: 25 years on
It's the 25th anniversary of the Bhopal gas tragedy tonight and tomorrow. I've posted about this before. Nothing much has changed: Dow still refuses culpability, Union Carbide still won't admit what was in the toxic cloud, and little is done to help the victims - now third generation - of the gas release. Most of the money paid out by UCC has never been received by victims or their families and the medical studies undertaken have been blocked from publication. A conspiracy of silence.
