The Bhopal 'accident' that was always going to happen occurred in 1984. In the 30th year since, Alex Masi's recent images have to work harder than ever for attention - and that's just for exposure, let alone a reaction, a response, an action. Sadly and wonderfully there are incredible lessons in these images, the Bhopalis would like to share what they've learnt, we would do well to listen: www.bhopal.org
The "Human Element" showcases Dow's commitment to addressing global economic, social and environmental concerns.
Elemental, fundamental, serious stuff...now have a look at this: http://youtu.be/ZT8z0TRYgtM It's 30 years on the 2nd/3rd of December this year since the chemical gas leak at the UCC Bhopal factory - how, what, where, why and when we learn has shifted beyond what we could ever be taught formally in school - if we're lucky we get exposed to progressive debate, inspiring thinkers and activists and opportunities to be part of something amazing. That's what Bhopal and its International Campaign for Justice does, it actually appeals to the conscious, common sense, human element in everyone.
Anjana Parikh interviews Jaya Greaves who worked for Southern Voices, the UK-based organisation that sought to ensure voices of the southern people are heard in mainstream life.
Healthy lessons = making connections. Jaya reminds us of how people in Bhopal are treated with combinations of Ayurveda and allopathy, many of the medicinal plants being grown in the garden at Sambhavna, one of only two free clinics located in the very heart of the most severely-affected communities. People are encouraged to take cuttings home and grow their own plants, care is mutual and long-lasting and the idea grows throughout the community. So simple; so beautifully effective.

'3. Banana workers again rebuffed by US court': another lonnnnnnnnng-running battle of the victimised facing the might of the legal and corporate giants. Bhopal survivors ARE visible (http://www.bhopal.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/2013-June-8-JPG.jpg) as are the lessons shared - for the migrant workers who were forced to apply Nemagon (made by Dow Chemical among others) - having access to free, appropriate medical care and pro bono legal representation is the stuff of dreams. So many precedents have been set by the Bhopalis,the small voice that they do have is getting louder all the time as they speak their truth for all.
As a cure yoga therapy is as good as prevention - because there's not a right time to begin, learn or practice, or a wrong one - well that's a relief! Wonderful to see the Leeds Uni Yoga Society coming together in child's pose: http://www.bhopal.org/2014/06/yoga-events-at-leeds-uni/ before learning about yoga therapy in Bhopal.

The Bhopalis have spent 30 years educating those who will listen, explaining and sharing painfully gained knowledge, and enduring Union Carbide - now Dow Chemical Corporation's murderous strategy of 'Not us, not our responsibility - terribly sorry - nothing we can do except throw millions at our ongoing evasion of the truth campaign'.
With this new evidence put forward by pro-bono lawyers in NY, the International Campaign for Justice' takes another firm step towards securing a safer world for all.
On the 9th of April, 2013 over 200 people who have been victims of the Bhopal Gas tragedy of 1984 - many who had lost their entire families to the tragedy - ...
Less than 6 months until the 30th anniversary of the world's worst industrial disaster. Dow Chemical, who took over Union Carbide Corp. in 2001 has not cleaned up, the UCC execs continue to abscond and daily injuries and deaths go uncompensated. Justice in Bhopal is LONG OVERDUE. FF to 27.00.
