Global Solidarity Action Reflects Global Outrage at Dow’s Olympic Sponsorhip
Today actions have been held in Bhopal, India and London, England demonstrating international outrage at Dow Chemical’s sponsorship of the Olympics. Further demonstrations are expected in the US and Canada.
As London celebrated one month to the Olympic Games, demonstrators were keen to emphasise the ongoing humanitarian and environmental disaster in Bhopal, and the toxic reputation of Olympic sponsor Dow Chemical.
Dow has both the power and the responsibility to clear up the site of the Bhopal gas disaster so that the toxic waste buried there does not continue to poison the people of Bhopal. but instead they choose to spend their money boosting their image and ignoring the continued suffering in Bhopal.
