Join us on the evening of December 2nd at the Friends Meeting House in Brighton to mark the 37th anniversary of the Bhopal gas disaster.
We invite you to join all of us at The Bhopal Medical Appeal on Thursday, December 2nd, for an evening of stories and film to mark the 37th anniversary of Union Carbide’s gas disaster in Bhopal, India.
The evening will shine a light on the experiences of the survivors of Bhopal, their struggles, resilience and triumphs in the face of lingering injustice and a disaster seemingly without end. Spoken word pieces include a reading by best-selling author Annie Murray from her recent novel ‘Mother and Child’, and an excerpt read by the charity's co-founder, author Indra Sinha, from his Man Booker shortlisted novel ‘Animal’s People’. Readings are followed by a short candlelit vigil. The evening concludes with the intimate documentary 'Where Do the Children Play?', which follows a 500-mile journey on foot by survivors to confront then-Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. There will also be chai and light refreshments.
The event will be held at the Friends Meeting House, Ship Street, Brighton, BN1 1AF from 6.45pm - 9pm.
