Today marks the 29th anniversary of the world's worst industrial disaster, a poisonous gas leak at the Union Carbide fertilizer factory in Bhopal, India. Some half million people were affected by the leak. Thousands died during the event and its immediate aftermath. After 29 years, the tragedy is still unfolding: survivors continue to suffer and to struggle for medical relief, compensation and justice. The plant itself remains a toxic site that continues to contaminate the groundwater.

Read a Statement On the Occasion of the 29th Anniversary of The Bhopal Gas Leak Disaster published by citizen groups.
