Bhopal Commemoration at Glasgow Green

Along with representatives from the Scottish Friends of Bhopal, The Bhopal Medical Appeal, Trade unions, and members of the European Green Party, I organised a commemoration for the Bhopal Gas Disaster on 3rd December 2016 at the Workers Memorial in Glasgow Green. This event remembered the thousands who died as a result of the gas explosion in Bhopal between 2nd to 3rd December 1984, but also the survivors who have long-term injuries and people who are second or third generation sufferers.

People gathered at workers memorial in Glasgow to remember Bhopal.

The Bhopal Medical Appeal continues to seek funds for clinics for the survivors. Currently, they are concerned about the proposed merger of Dow Chemical and Dupont, and have written to the EU Competition Commissioner to seek an investigation in to this merger.
