The Bhopal gas disaster, as well as the slew of chemical disasters impacting communities around the world, reminds us of the need for people-power to hold corporate-power accountable. In preparation for the 30th anniversary, the International Campaign for Justice in Bhopal, North America, is organizing (with our local Allies) a North American Screening Tour of the critically acclaimed documentary, Bhopali. By bringing this film to a community in Buffalo, we hope to build solidarity with survivors & spread the message of this 29 year old struggle for corporate accountability. Please find the trailer at: www.bhopalithemovie.com Accompanying this tour will be Bhopali survivor-activist, Sanjay Verma. Sanjay lost 7 members of his immediate family (parents and 5 siblings) in the Bhopal gas disaster, and has become a key voice in this ongoing struggle for justice.
