Press Statement from the Sambhavna Trust
On the eve of the 33rd Anniversary of the Union Carbide Gas Disaster in Bhopal, members of the Sambhavna Trust Clinic today marched with candles and portraits of gas victims who have died untimely deaths this year. Members of the bereaved families joined them in remembering the over 25 thousand people who have been killed by Union Carbide’s poisonous gases. All of the deceased were less than 60 years at the time of their death and two of them were just 33 years old when they died. The marchers observed two minutes of silence at the end of the march and resolved to continue supporting the survivors’ attempts to recover from the effects of the disaster.
