Video Description

Bhopal/Madhya Pradesh Dec 02 (ANI): Hundreds of people staged a protest in Bhopal and demanded justice for the victims of the Bhopal gas tragedy. Elderly men and women, some of whom were injured by the toxic cyanide gas leak, together with activists, supporters and children held up banners and burnt effigies. Raising slogans against the government and the company involved in the disaster, the protestors said that they haven't been compensated even 31 years after the incident. Activists accuse the Indian and U.S. Governments and the Dow Chemical Company, which now owns Union Carbide, of not doing enough to support the victims of the disaster. They want more financial compensation for the victims and the removal of thousands of tons of toxic waste around the plant. Meanwhile, another gas tragedy victim, Rampyari Bai, demanded punishment for the culprits and said Dow Chemical Company must be ousted from India. Dow Chemical has denied liability, saying it bought Union Carbide a decade after the firm settled its liabilities with the Indian government in 1989 by paying $470 million.
