In February Bhopal survivors walked 500 miles from Bhopal to Delhi to demand the right to live free of chemical poisons and to demand justice for their families. They are drinking water laden with poison and their children are being born with horrific birth defects. They have been sitting in the heat for over 50 days, building international solidarity and political support for their cause. Their demands to the Indian Government are simple and reasonable: establish an empowered and funded commission to deal with the issues in Bhopal; and take legal action against Dow. Please join us to show your support for the Bhopalis' demands. Please RSVP and let us know that you are coming. Also, please let us know if you are able to help us plan or recruit for this event. Call 415-746-0306 or email shana@panna.org. To learn more about the Bhopalis' Dharna in New Delhi, please check out the Dharna Blog at http://www.bhopal.net/march/dharna2008_blog.html.
