Union Carbide may have abandoned their plant in 1984, but the toxic waste that they had been throwing into a breached solar evaporation pond has stayed and spread each monsoon season into surrounding neighbourhoods

I came to know of this problem when I was in India a few years ago. Many are still suffering, and many are fighting for the justice. Thanks for posting.

Hope justice comes soon to the many lives lost due to the companies action..And they do need to be responsible and accountable for cleaning up the mess they left..

Thanks Cal..

Gee why am i not surprised?? When money becomes your God no good can come of it. How many other companies are slowly doing the same thing in our country. Texas most poluted state in union which is astonding condsidering the size of Texas!!! The shear volume to accomplish that in a place that is mostly empty land except for large ranches and such! What toxins must me present there???

Union Carbide was in a joint venture there with the government of India. The plant was built in an area that wasn't residential at all. The Indian government allowed a shanty town to spring up on the fence line. And it was a single individual with malicious intent who purposely caused the accident there. Was that person identified and brought to justice?

The Indian government took over $400 million dollars from Union Carbide in compensation. What did they do with that?

UC, like too many other companies too big for their britches, thinks only of their bottom line - I hope they get spanked, and hard!

Why the people who caused this disaster have not been brought to justice for this terrible tragedy is beyond me.The victims of this crime for that is what it was have suffered terribly and should be compensated although no amount of money will release them from the pain they suffered.Once again we see the lack of corporate responsibility who show a remarkable lack of compassion for those whom they hurt.Make them pay.

Multi National Corporations are never truly brought to justice. Big money and big power have no shame, remorse and guilt.

Sadly in this modern day and age, it is often difficult for people in one country to enforce laws on people in another country - or even in their own country.

Many people in New Plymouth in New Zealand also have issues with Dow relating to health effects of chemicals in a former plant there.

Anyone who hasn't read 'UNION CARBIDES' side of the story, should go to http://www.bhopal.com/
From what I read,It seems they think it is nothing more to do with them.
