Come hear about a new Environmental Human Rights Campaign in India Pollution is a human rights violation. The 1984 Union Carbide disaster in Bhopal, India, has established beyond doubt the graveness of the human rights violations among communities impacted by pollution. The disaster demonstrated the vulnerability of communities that are left in the dark about the toxic chemicals and processes in their neighborhood factories. Many Bhopals in slow motion continue and grow in India today with the invasion of industries into previously sustainable communities. The Community Environment Monitoring project recently launched in India aims to research, test and deploy simple, inexpensive and accurate tools and practices to allow pollution-impacted communities to monitor their environment and campaign for positive change using this information. With Madhu Dutta, Ann Leonard (GAIA) and Denny Larson (GCM)
