There is a place in India, where on a fateful day in 1984, poisonous gas fumes escaped
the Union Carbide plant and polluted the environment of Bhopal.
Thousands died, thousands have been born deformed and with life-long illnesses.
Bhopal looks like a blighted place, which it seems people would rather not look at.
But the people there have to endure their impoverished environment, angry that nothing much has been done for them. Sad, disappointed; hoping someone, somewhere has not forgotten them, and their suffering.
It seems time that the Indian government should appoint a team of lawyers to pursue a class action on behalf of the people of Bhopal. Only when a satisfactory solution is arrived at, and the victims adequately compensated, will trust be re-established towards corporations like Union Carbide.
I very much hope and pray that people individually and collectively will help to address this problem, and get a dialogue going so that the people of Bhopal will know that people exercise responsibility and will all help to secure a just settlement for them.
I send my loves and good wishes to the people of Bhopal.
Your caring friend and brother,
