December 2, 2014 marked the 30 year anniversary of Union Carbide’s chemical disaster in Bhopal, India.
“We All Live in Bhopal” commemorates 30 years of the Carbide Disaster with a series of events from December 1-8, 2014. For more details log onto: www.walib.org
“We All Live in Bhopal” because we are all exposed to industrial toxins and at risk for an accidental exposure. One out of three Americans lives in the disaster zone of a high risk chemical facility. Berkeley, CA is in the disaster zone of 5 high risk chemical facilities. The EPA is yet to mandate Inherently Safer Technology.
In addition to promoting solidarity with survivors and their children, “We All Live in Bhopal” intends to offer the Union Carbide Gas Disaster as a lens to bring into focus the widespread ecological and humanitarian injuries resulting from our global community’s prioritization of profit over environmental and human safety.
