Dow's Texas headquarters blockaded; contaminated water returned

Feature story - 11 March, 2003
"Our message is simple," said Greenpeace's Casey Harrell. "Dow must clean up Bhopal now and accept full responsibility for the health and environmental damage in that city. Until it does so, Dow will never be a responsible corporate citizen."

The International Campaign for Justice in Bhopal (ICJB) returns contaminated drinking water from Bhopal, India, to Dow Chemical's Texas headquarters.

The International Campaign for Justice in Bhopal (ICJB) returned contaminated drinking water from Bhopal, India, to Dow Chemical's Texas headquarters.

Greenpeace activists blocked the entrances to the Houston Dow Center after delivering 250 gallons of contaminated water taken from wells in Bhopal, the site of the world's worst industrial disaster.

The water, the same water that the people of Bhopal are forced to drink everyday, was removed from the scene by a hazardous materials team.

Protestors from across the United States demanded that Dow meet with Bhopal survivors to discuss their legitimate grievances and that the company drop two civil suits it has filed in India against Bhopal survivors.

This blockade comes on the heels of a virtual sit in that started yesterday and will continue until Dow drops the court case against the survivors.

Be part of the virtual sit in. (This automated web site is so small it can run in the background while you do other work!)
