Pensions Group Protest at 32nd Anniversary Bhopal Disaster

001-400

Elderly protesters from BGBNPSM group at Neelam Park, 1st December, 2016

On the eve of the 32nd anniversary of the Bhopal Disaster members of Bhopal Gas Peedit Nirashrit Pensionbhogi Sangharsh Morcha (BGPNPSM) protest in the blazing midday sunshine at Neelam Park in Bhopal.

They bemoan the lack of care and support they receive as pensioners, whilst still suffering ill-health as a result of the disaster, along with the pitiful levels of compensation they have received. They’re also pointing out that the Indian Government’s ‘curative petition’ which aims to address the inadequacies of that settlement is itself using too small a number to reflect the real deaths and injuries tally.

We believe Dow & DuPont must finally accept responsibility for Bhopal. Until then, The Bhopal Medical Appeal funds two award-winning clinics in the city. Both offer free, first-class care to victims of the gas disaster or the ongoing water contamination. The survivors have nowhere else left to turn – please help if you can.
