Protesters Call for Justice on Anniversary of Deadly Gas Tragedy in India

BHOPAL, India – Supporters and survivors of a major gas leak in the central Indian city of Bhopal that left thousands dead called for justice on Monday at a protest marking the 34th anniversary of the disaster.

The incident, widely considered to be the world’s worst industrial accident, struck overnight on Dec. 2-3, 1984, at a plant belonging to Union Carbide India Limited, since renamed Dow Chemical, which exposed hundreds of thousands of people to the highly toxic methyl isocyanate gas and other chemicals.

Among some of the banners carried by protesters in Bhopal on Monday were slogans like: “Mourn the dead fight for the living,” “Justice now!” and “150,000 chronically ill in Bhopal Dow Chemical must pay for medical care.”

Demonstrators also burned an effigy symbolizing Dow Chemical.
