With you in spirit, Rashida, Champa and all: tonight, since 1984 and always. (2 December 2021) @WinVisibleWomen @woc_gws @WomenStrike @womenstrike_us

Summed up by @RachnaDhingra:

37 years of Union Carbide disaster in Bhopal

No punishment

Less than $500 compensation for lifelong injuries

No rehabilitation

Dismal medical care

Groundwater poisoned

Children being born with disabilities

Governments too busy protecting the killers

Bhopalis refuse to give up or forget
