The Union Carbide chemical disaster killed more than 23,000 people in Bhopal, India, in 1984. This tour, by a group of activists and survivors, is committed to No More Bhopals. It focuses on the need for more effective regulation worldwide to protect marginalized communities from chemical harm. They also hope to gain support to hold Union Carbide’s parent, Dow Chemical, responsible for the still ongoing medical costs and clean-up.
