JUSTICE in  BHOPAL
Holding Dow Chemical Accountable

An Evening with Survivors of the Bhopal Disaster


Thursday May 8, 2002
7 PM, Kuenzel Room at Michigan Union
University of Michigan

In December 1984, deadly gases leaked from Union Carbide's plant in 
Bhopal, India, KILLING over 8,000 people immediately. Over 20,000 
have died since.  More than 30 people continue to die every month as 
a result of the gas exposure.
Toxic waste left behind at the site has contaminated the drinking 
water of the community.  Carbide's poisons are now showing up in 
mother's milk.

The tour is a project of Action Against Corporate Crime and Toxic 
Terror (AaCcTt), a coalition of Bhopal based survivor groups, 
national and international allies.  For information, visit

Sponsored by Association for India's Development (AID-Ann Arbor)

On Thursday Morning May 9th, people interested in going to Midland to 
attend the Dow Shareholder's meeting will meet in front of the 
Ecology Center, at 117 N. Division St. Ann Arbor.
