Union Carbide and Dow must meet their contactual and moral obligations in Bhopal

Union Carbide and  Dow must meet their contactual and moral obligations in Bhopal

To Ban union Carbide and Dow from importing or using a single drop of isocyanate in India, until they have met their legal and moral obligations and clean up Union Carbide's Bhopal site where, in Dec. 1984 there was an Isocyanate gas leak and thousands of people died. The companies should also compensate all the people affected by the leak.

Why is this important?

Children are still dying from playing in the polluted area.
Shortly after the leakage Union Carbide sold the plant to Dow, to avoid meeting their obligations to the people of Bhopal. Upjohn Polymer have recently sold their Isocyanate plant to Dow. Dow chemical is aiming to expand its business in PU in India. Polyurethane (PU) foams use 50% isocyanates in their manufacture.
