Bay Area Commemorates the Bhopal Gas DisasterAdded to the calendar on Tuesday Dec 2nd, 2008 1:20 PM
Join us on December 6, 2008 to commemorate the 24th Anniversary of the Bhopal Gas Disaster. We will be collecting postcards and talking to people about the anniversary at the Fremont Farmer's Market from 11:00-1:00. Bring any signs or banners you have, and a pen to collect postcard signatures.
Where: Bonde Way and Fremont Boulevard, in Fremont, CA. It's 2 miles from the Fremont BART stop.
When: Anytime that you can come from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM
PLEASE RSVP to shana [at] panna.org.
Why: The International Campaign for Justice in Bhopal (ICJB) is holding around 100 actions this week across the United States, India, and the world to remember victims and honor survivors of the Bhopal gas disaster, the devastating effects of which are still being felt by over 100,000 Bhopal residents who live near to the Union Carbide factory where the world’s worst industrial disaster occurred.
Supporters in the U.S. will gather from San Francisco to Boston to Austin, Texas, holding candlelight vigils, circulating petitions among people pledging not work for Dow Chemical Company, which now owns Union Carbide and all of its liabilities in Bhopal, and raising awareness for the Bhopal struggle.
Let me know if you're interested in carpooling from San Francisco, or if you can offer a ride to others interested in going from your part of the Bay Area!
