25 years ago, Union Carbide pesticide plant in Bhopal, India leaked extremely toxic methyl isocyanate (MIC) into the surrounding city, exposing almost a million people and killing 8-10 thousands in the initial three days. For the last 25 years, Bhopal survivors have sought clean-up, compensation and accountability from Union Carbide to little or no avail. Amnesty International Group 48 and the Association for India’s Development have come together to raise awareness for the initial gas leak and the subsequent 25 years of injustice, and to inspire our community to take an active stance against this tragedy. Please join us in taking a stand.
